Board 22 - Improving Resident EMR Implementation: The Case for Peer Experts

3:30 PM–4:30 PM May 20, 2020 (Conference Time: US - Pacific)

3:30 PM–4:30 PM May 20, 2020


Abstract: Resident physicians often carry the burden of physician clinical documentation in the EMR, however optimal training for this group remains elusive. Initial surveys of the EMR training receive by first-year resident at Madigan Army medical Center revealed a lack of perceived usefulness and self-efficacy in completing routine tasks. The training program was redesigned to incorporate peer experts which resulted in improvements for both usefulness and self-efficacy in EMR training of first-year resident physicians.
