HIMSS19 Research Report

HIMSS Analytics surveyed 323 clinical and IT leaders at HIMSS19 and online to find out how prevalent clinician cognitive overload is, which healthcare technologies are contributing to it most, and how to solve the problem.

We discovered that leaders view minimizing cognitive burden as important to organizational success, and that technology in and of itself is not the root cause of the problem.

In this report, you’ll learn:

  • Signs and symptoms of clinician cognitive overload healthcare leaders are observing most frequently
  • Technology-based tasks that contribute most to the problem
  • Technology improvements leaders say would help the most to reduce clinician cognitive burden
