Inspired EHRs: Designing for Clinicians (formerly EHR Usability Style Guide) is a generously illustrated, interactive e-book for health IT developers, whether EHR / PHR / healthcare app software vendors, EHR client organization implementation teams, EHR consultants, or usability professionals. We made this book to be clinically relevant, inspirational, and illustrative, but not prescriptive. Freely available on the web at inspiredEHRs.org, it's available as a PDF version as well.
Written in an accessible, science journalist style, the book was developed in a series of workshops with the support and encouragement of our colleagues of the Electronic Health Record Association (EHRA) Clinician Experience Workgroup. This book was made possible thanks to the generous support of the SHARP-C Project of the Office of the National Coordinator of Health IT and the California HealthCare Foundation. The team, based at the University of Missouri-Columbia in partnership with Involution Studios Boston included colleagues from the University of Maryland Human-Computer Interaction Lab and The University of Texas Health Sciences Center-Houston.
We hope to produce a series of similar interactive e-books on related health IT topics.
