Most people know that I’m a sucker for a well done infographic. Of course, there are a lot of crappy infographics out there, but a well done one is easy to read, educates, and informs in a really nice way. That’s why I enjoyed this infographic from The PEW Charitable Trusts embedded below.
Some of the EHR usability it issues are well known things like alert fatigue and incomplete lab results. However, I was impressed that this list included things that are often hidden from many’s view like the unintended consequences of customization and autorefresh mix-ups. Of course, the infographic doesn’t talk about how to fix them, but in many of these cases awareness is what’s most needed to fix the problem.
