The implementation of the electronic health record (EHR) across the globe has increased significantly in the last decade. Motivations for this trend include patient safety, regulatory requirements, and healthcare cost containment. However, the impact of regulatory requirements and new EHRs on clinicians has increased the incidence of documentation burden and may lead to burnout syndrome. It is important to understand the extent of documentation burden and potential solutions such as EHR user-interface redesign and the use of scribes to assist healthcare providers across the world.
