Nearly 83 percent of health IT users have seen some kind of quality performance benefit in physician EHR use, according to a recent survey from the Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society (HIMSS), EHR Intelligence writes. The survey, which questioned advanced EHR users who have been recognized as HIMSS Stage 6 or 7 users or Davies Award winners, sought to see how user experiences line up with the HIMSS STEPS Model. The STEPS Model measures health IT value on categories such as satisfaction, treatment/clinical outcomes, electronic information/data, patient engagement, and population management and savings. According to the survey, EHR users have seen benefits across all of those categories.
