A study recently published by the American Laryngological, Rhinological and Otological Society found that otolaryngology residents who used electronic health records (EHR) spent less time on direct patient care.
 
The study’s researchers wanted to see what sort of impact EHRs had on the resident’s workflow. Although EHR use did not effect overall efficiency, resident were found to spend more time on indirect patient care such as documenting and reading results in the EHR.
