In case you missed it, earlier this month, in lieu of our monthly newsletter, we sent a special message from our founder, Kent Gale. That message is contained below. We wanted to give everyone the chance to participate in the beta phase of our EMR Improvement Collaborative, which is aimed at helping fix the EMR-productivity paradox. The sign-up period for the beta phase will end on June 30th. Please let us know if you are interested in participating.

The challenges virtually every physician and caregiver faces using an electronic record motivates us to replace our newsletter this month in favor of an invitation to participate in an industry solution for EMR usability.
Your organization is invited to participate in a collaborative to improve the usability, effectiveness and happy adoption of EMRs. You and your peers have challenged KLAS to step up, leveraging our industry connections. You can help but it might take some extra courage.
The backbone of this approach is EMR utility and satisfaction measurements at organizations across the country. All physicians at an organization are invited to provide their two cents, allowing you and your organization to benchmark your users’ responses against those of other organizations. With the 13 organizations who have participated to date, we have begun to see this data be a powerful motivator for change and direction of what you can do to improve the experience of end users.
Participation is not for everyone—some organizations have expressed nervousness to elicit this feedback or a feeling that the time is not right. If you want to explore the possibility please email EMRcollaborative@klasresearch.
