Context and Meaning in EHR Displays.

Context and Meaning in EHR Displays. Stud Health Technol Inform. 2019 Aug 09;265:69-73 Authors: Kuziemsky CE, Schwartz DG, Airan-Javia S, Koppel R Abstract Many Electronic Health Record (EHRs) data displays are insensitive to their settings, contexts, and to clinicians' needs. Yet, the contexts in which the data are displayed critically affect EHR usability and patient safety. Medication prescribing is a complex task; especially sensitive to contextual variation in EHR displays as vast variations in formats and logic are often unnecessarily confusing, leading to unwanted cognitive burdens and medical errors. With examples of EHR screenshots, we illustrate contextual variations in medication and allergy displays across different EHR systems and implementations-noting often seemingly haphazard differences that can lead to misunderstandings and misinterpretations.

ConclusionThe trial demonstrated a favorable safety profile of the SQ HDM SLIT-tablet in Japanese adult patients with AA. The treatment appeared to be efficacious in patients requiring rescue medication (i.e., SABA) at baseline in the efficacy assessment using asthma exacerbation during ICS reduction (JapicCTI number 121847).

ConclusionCRS is associated with an increased incidence of asthma, AMI, stroke, anxiety disorder, and depression. Therefore, we suggest that clinicians should monitor CRS patients carefully, and optimize management as a means to potentially decrease these other associated comorbid conditions.
