Abstract

Little is known about how existing electronic health records (EHRs) influence the practice of pediatricmedicine. A total of 808 pediatricians participated in a survey about workflows using the EHR. The EHR was the most commonly used source of initial patient information. Seventytwo percent reported requiring between 2 and 10 minutes to complete an initial review of the EHR. Several moderately severe information barriers were reported regarding the display of information in the EHR. Pediatricians acquire information about new patients from EHRs more often than any other source. EHRs play a critical role in pediatric care but require improved design and efficiency.
