AMIA 2012: TURFS: A tool to Semi-Automate Usability Assessments of EHRs

ABSTRACT: Sub-optimal EHR usability can lead to poor adoption, reduced clinical productivity and patient safety problems. Conducting usability assessments throughout the development lifecycle has been shown to reduce the likelihood of use errors, increase efficiency and satisfaction. However, conducting usability assessments, such as expert reviews, are challenging due to the large amount of data generated. The TURF suite (TURFS) provides a systematic and objective tool to conduct usability evaluation efficiently.
