The use of electronic health records (EHR) directly contributes to physician burnout. Additionally, poor EHR design can affect decision making and cause delays in care, medical errors, and unanticipated patient-safety events. By providing individual, tailored training for physicians struggling with EHR usability, this project aims to improve EHR experience and mitigate EHR-related stressors, decreasing EHR burden and improving physician well-being.
