Streamlining EHR Work to Improve Clinician Well-being - Annie Ideker, MD

In this episode, Dr. Ideker and I dig deep into her team’s work on EHR optimization to ensure that the EHR works for clinicians and not the other way around. In 2020, after rapidly standing up telehealth infrastructure in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, Dr. Ideker and her team identified four key areas of focus for EHR improvement: orders redesign, documentation, best practice and medication alerts, and Epic proficiency. In each of these areas, she and her team designed solutions using a data-driven approach, in partnership with clinicians, and always with the aim of making the technology effective, efficient, and even delightful.
