Clinicians' perceptions of usability of eNote

AMIA Annu Symp Proc. 2005;2005:973.


The purpose of this evaluation was to assess perceptions of usability of a new semi-structured electronic clinical note. Two focus groups were held, one with attending physicians and one with residents. Physicians described their experiences with eNote and their perceptions about the system. Transcripts of the focus groups underwent content analysis, and four major themes emerged. These were "time", "hardware-system issues", "eNote application issues", and "patients' perceptions."
