    One of the least usable functions of ambulatory and inpatient EHRs and HIE physician (and patient) portals is viewing and sharing the results of cumulative diagnostic tests.

    This major usability gap in vendor-developed EHR, PHR and HIE platform systems is a relic of the 1960s when Homer Warner in Utah and Octo Barnett in Massachusetts first began to develop medical computer systems.

    The basic problem is that the flawed user interfaces of EHR, PHR and HIE platforms stil use variable reporting formats to display results as incomplete and fragmented data.

    The simple solution is an intuitive, easy-to-use, standard reporting format that can display the results of all 7,500 available tests as clinically integrated, actionable information.

    Perhaps your organization might consider incorporating into one of your future surveys one simple question—do physicians prefer to view and share lifetime patient test results as fragmented data or complete, actionable information?
