The role of electronic health record (EHR) in physician burnout is receiving national attention. We analyzed provider-specific EHR utilization data and survey responses to assess physicians’ self-efficacy in using EHR tools and to explore ways to improve efficiency. Most physicians see use of the EHR as a clinical skill that they can master. A provider EHR training curriculum for the classroom was marginally effective but not time-efficient. Individualized training with provider-determined goals may be a more effective strategy.
Learning Objective 1: Learn about ambulatory physicians' self efficacy in using and learning about EHR.
Learning Objective 2: Identify opportunities and barriers to physician EHR training to aid in developing and delivering ongoing provider education.
