Physician Satisfaction with Best-of-Breed EDIS 59% Higher than Enterprise Systems

KLAS reports voice of the physician in new emergency department information systems report

Orem, Utah – Feb. 7, 2013 - Emergency department physicians interviewed by KLAS cite better clinical decision support, overall usability, and accuracy of documentation as the primary reasons satisfaction with best of breed is higher than with enterprise emergency department information systems (EDIS). The results can be found in a recently published report, EDIS 2013: Revealing the Physicians’ Voice.

“For years KLAS has heard physicians express passionate concerns over the impact that inefficient and inadequate emergency department systems can have on their ability to deliver patient care,” says report author Erik Bermudez.

The study compares the performance differences between EDIS offerings in facilitating ED efficiency, documentation quality, patient safety, and interoperability. Vendors included in the report are Allscripts, Cerner, Epic, MEDHOST, MEDITECH, Picis, T-System, and Wellsoft.

Although best-of-breed systems score higher overall, physicians report that enterprise systems have advantages in interoperability, the continuation of care, and communicating with other departments within the hospital.
