Abstract

The purpose of this study was to compare hospitalists' performance, workload, and satisfaction on a commercial EMR via desktop and a native mobile application. Twelve attending pediatric hospitalists were recruited at Children's Mercy Kansas City using an online survey. Participants were successful in completing tasks on both devices, except for ordering an X-ray and locating a specific document, where participants were more successful on the desktop. Difficulty was rated statistically higher on mobile for three of six comparable tasks. Workload was rated statistically higher on mobile for the dimensions of effort and frustration. The difference between overall preference ratings between the desktop and mobile was not statistically significant. Overall, participants liked that the mobile EMR provides access where the desktop cannot, namely in hallways, on rounds, or at the bedside. Due to limited functionality, the mobile EMR is currently a complement to the desktop, rather than a replacement.
