Definition of Usability: Usability is the effectiveness, efficiency and satisfaction with which specific users can achieve a specific set of tasks in a particular environment [Schoeffel R. The concept of product usability. ISO Bulletin. 2003;34:6-7.].
The results of the 2013 Physician Engagement Survey recognized EHR usability as one of the chief complaints amongst physicians. The HIMSS Physician Committee developed the HIMSS Physician Community Usability Workgroup to provide education and resources to identify and ease the burden of usability for the medical informatics community. Working with the HIMSS Usability and HIT Safety Community, our members strive to bring their perspective and resolution to the industry at large.
