HIMSS Analytics surveyed hospital IT and clinical leaders at HIMSS18 to find out the impact of technology-driven interruptions on doctors and nurses, and how effective IT is at measuring and managing those interruptions.

We discovered that when it comes to interruptions from technology, clinicians see a bigger problem than IT does.

In this report, you’ll learn about disparity between clinical and IT leaders’ perceptions of:

  • How frequently doctors and nurses are interrupted
  • The difficulty interruptions impose on patient care
  • How much interruptions contribute to stress and burnout
