To determine the current state of resident documentation in our PICU, we performed a time-motion analysis and distributed a survey. We found that 64.5% of pre-rounding time was used for EHR time (55% involved transcription from screen to paper), while only 18.4% was used for direct patient contact. We designed a new EHR documentation workflow that streamlines generation of rounding flowsheets, handoff reports, and progress notes to eliminate transcription waste and increase direct patient contact.
Learning Objective 1: Learn about specific areas of waste in resident documentation practices
Learning Objective 2: Learn about targeted workflow solutions for documentation waste and their effect on resident practice and opinion
