Gaps in talent management systems expose opportunities for improvement
OREM, Utah - June 12, 2013 - Four out of five healthcare providers say their talent management systems have a moderate to significant positive impact on employee performance and productivity. This key finding comes as providers are beginning to focus more on the use of technology to attract and manage human capital, according to a newly-released study entitled Talent Management 2013: The Journey has Begun.
KLAS report finds the burden for the EMR usability gap shared between vendors and providers.
Orem, Utah -June 6, 2013-The first-ever report on EMRs that targets the voice of ambulatory physician leadership finds that success in achieving high usability ranges from 85 percent to 55 percent. The KLAS report, entitled Ambulatory EMR Usability 2013: More Nurture than Nature, reveals exactly where the pain points are for providers and what they are doing to address that pain.
"Meaningful use is driving the adoption of EMRs, but at times this comes at the cost of efficiency and effectiveness," said report author Mark Wagner. "The financial investment in EMR technology can be large for providers, but this investment pales in comparison to the outlay in effort providers are making to customize the products to achieve high usability."
