As this was mentioned in the article, the provided evidence of workload, HER’s poor design, and alert fatigue would state that EMR is also one of the causes of physician burnout. Although I lack firsthand EMR experience, based on insights from friends in clinical settings, I can imagine the familiarity with the electronic devices, the absence of support staff for note-taking, and the perception of administrative tasks overshadowing patient care would also be the reasons to burn out of using the EMRs for the physicians.
I would consider helping the physicians believe themselves in the benefits of using EMRs over the exhaustion of using electronic records would be also one solution from the first place. That would be also related to the social behavior change movement and should also include the actions of enhancing familiarity with the technologies. Additionally, supporting staff in EMRs as in paper-based note-taking roles may ease the burden. The last one is calculating the patient-physician ratios and factoring in EMR-related time demands can guide management decisions, ensuring an appropriate workload per physician. However, this approach will be challenging in resource-limited settings.
