Asheville, NC (PRWEB) May 16, 2013
DoctorDirectory, a leading marketing solutions company serving healthcare professionals and pharmaceutical industry clients, asked their community of HCPs to submit questions for a series of peer surveys. After collecting the submissions, the questions were divided up into separate surveys and sent to HCPs across the United States. Results from the EHR study were recently published.
EHR systems have plenty of room for improvement, according to physicians. When asked if EHR has improved productivity, 40% of physicians replied that it had not. Additionally, more than half of the physicians said that adoption of EHR has increased their overall workload. Adoption of EHR has not been overwhelmingly cost-effective either, as 50% of physicians say that adoption has not saved money.
Physicians were also interested in the features that accompany EHR adoption. 85% of responders said that they are currently ePrescribing as part of their EHR adoption. Further, two-thirds of physicians’ EHR systems are tablet and/or mobile friendly, allowing them to access the system across multiple devices.
More than 500 physicians responded to the survey; results are provided to DoctorDirectory’s HCP members via the DoctorDirectory.com healthcare professional website. For more information about this survey please visit ContactDD.com or call 828-255-0012 ext. 105.
