Continuing Patient Care during Electronic Health Record Downtime

Larsen, E., Hoffman, D., Rivera, C., et al. (2019). Continuing Patient Care during Electronic Health Record Downtime. Applied Clinical Informatics. 10(3):495-504.
This article used quantitative analysis and seventeen interviews with hospital staff at two mid-Atlantic health care facilities to understand the impact of electronic health record (EHR) downtime on the clinical laboratory. In addition to results “delayed by an average of 62% compared with normal operation,” the authors note that research and contingency planning for EHR downtime can be complicated by the difficulty of collecting data during downtime and provide suggestions for improving downtime management.
