Usability, Accessibility and Telehealth

A while ago there were two healthcare conferences that we attended here in Washington DC. One was the American Telehealth Association’s Fall forum and the other was The Interagency Committee on Disability Research (ICDR)’s Accessibility and Usability in Health Information Technology (HIT)

Crash test dummies and The Usability of Electronic Health Records

EHR vendors were quick to say that the 2015 Edition ONC Certification for Safety-enhanced Design are too burdensome, that they are too difficult to complete, and they are not necessary.
