Using Electronic Health Records to Predict Physician Departure

A new Yale study published Oct. 12 in JAMA Network Open examined whether electronic health records (EHRs), which aim to improve efficiency in healthcare but also have been associated with physician burnout, can be used to identify physicians at risk of leaving.

Researchers looked for measures associated with physician turnover. They found two:

The amount of time spent managing the EHR inbox and the portion of a physician’s orders that were placed by other team members.

Evidence of fewer contributions from team members was associated with higher rates of physician turnover
