Cancer Care Delivery Lab study featured in Patient Engagement HIT

Our team analyzed data from the Health Information National Trends Study (n=8,790 adults) and found that smartphone-only internet was associated with reduced patient portal use.

Notwithstanding, physicians with greater team support may see less time spent in the EHR. The findings suggest adopting care team models may be one component of an organization's strategy to addressing physician burnout.
