Report on Electronic Health Record (EHR) Safety Performance Trends From 2009 to 2018

    On May 29, 2020, a group of medical researchers released a report entitled “National Trends in the Safety Performance of Electronic Health Record Systems From 2009 to 2018,” which contains insights gained from an analysis of 2,300 hospitals and their computerized physician order entry (CPOE) electronic health records (EHRs).

    The study revealed that the metric for overall EHR safety standards increased from 53.9% in 2009 to 65.6% in 2018. The researchers offer several recommendations to improve EHR safety performance, including that hospitals should (1) conduct yearly safety evaluations, (2) assess EHR systems after large upgrades to identify shortcomings, and (3) provide evaluation results to their EHR vendor so that vendors can create safer products.
