Improving the usability of electronic health records (EHRs) has been the focus of recent government Health Information Technology (HIT) initiatives. A recently released document from the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), Technical Evaluation, Testing and Validation of the Usability of Electronic Health Records [NIST 7804] highlights processes and procedures for evaluating the design and validating the usability of EHRs as well as user interface factors that affect patient safety. NIST 7804 was co-authored by Robert Schumacher, PhD, Managing Director of User Centric (usercentric.com).

The EHR Usability Protocol (EUP) introduced in NIST 7804 provides a three step process including: usability assessment, expert review, and user testing. This model is based on research relating usability to patient safety. In addition to safety, increasing usability of EHRs should have a measurable impact on improving user adoption of HIT. On their website, NIST describes usability as “an important yet often overlooked factor impacting the adoption and meaningful use of EHR systems.”

Schumacher adds,“Usability of EHRs is essential to ensuring a high level of safe and effective level of patient care. NISTIR 7804 is a first step in providing a systematic way of measuring user performance so that vendors can improve on the safety, effectiveness, and efficiency of their applications.”
Schumacher is actively involved in designing and evaluating usability criteria for electronic health records through the Human Factors and Ergonomics Society, HIMSS Usability Taskforce, professional societies, and commercial and non-profit organizations.

User Centric’s experience in healthcare (usercentric.com) includes design and testing of medical devices, health informatics applications, packaging/labels, equipment and pills. Lending insights to home user and clinician-centered design and user experience research in the medical field, consultants have been published in medical journals and presented at medical association meetings and conferences. User Centric also hosts healthcare-focused webinars, including one on March 27,“Medical Device Human Factors: Catching up to the FDA.” This complimentary webinar will discuss the human factors validation process for medical device manufacturers.
