  • Little is known about how providers expect the implementation of a new electronic health record (EHR) will affect their clinical workflow. We found that providers currently completing clinical tasks electronically are more satisfied with task completion than those completing similar tasks on paper. Yet, these already electronic providers expect less future satisfaction with the new EHR compared with paper-based providers. Further understanding of provider expectations can assist in optimally tailoring implementation plans.
