Electronic medical record usability survey

11 May 2023

Australian clinicians are invited to participate in this research project to measure the clinical community's impressions, experience, and usability of electronic medical record systems.

This research is led by the University of Tasmania (UTAS) and a collaboration with four other universities (Monash, Griffith, QUT online and the University of Wollongong) and a team of digital health experts. The research is conducted within the ethical protocols of the UTAS. The UTAS ethics approval name and number for this research are National Study of Electronic Health/Medical Record Usability - Australian Clinicians 2022 (H0028113 (H-89597)) (ID 927316). 

The benefits of the research are that findings will be used to inform the design of future health information systems, measure improvements in usability over time, and better understand the usability concerns of electronic medical record systems.

This study is repeating our previous research conducted in 2020. The findings are found here:

  1. Medical and nursing clinician perspectives on the usability of the hospital electronic medical record: A qualitative analysis 
  2. A National Survey of EMR Usability: Comparisons between medical and nursing professions in the hospital and primary care sectors in Australia and Finland

The survey will take approximately five minutes to complete.

The participant information sheet and consent form are embedded within the survey's introductory section. This is a web-based survey using Lime Survey. All responses to the survey are anonymous and data will remain confidential.
