This lounge will help help nursing students explore some of the emerging technologies designed to overcome EHR's notorious lack of interoperability and help learn about new innovative technology. Those entering the workplace with solutions to these types of problems may have an edge over candidates. Look to this lounge as a source of information from industry leaders and healthcare 2.0 innovators.

A poorly implemented electronic health record (EHR) system with chaotic processes and bungling IT support is becoming a detriment to hospital nurse retention and recruitment. 

Frustration with EHRs has never been higher among RNs, with vast majorities complaining of poor workflows, bad communication and scant input on implementation decisions, a new survey shows. 

Although they're on the front lines of care delivery, and the most frequent users of EHRs, an overwhelming 98 percent of the 13,650 licensed RNs polled by Black Book for its latest EHR Loyalty Poll say they've never been included in their hospitals' IT decisions or design.

Their dissatisfaction has reached "an all time high," according to Black Book, with 85 percent of nurses saying they grapple daily with flawed EHR systems.

Nurses can help lead the charge to change these conditions by advocating the use of new techologies like middleware and innovations that enable connectivity with ‘plug and play’ solutions that have been available for years, the same ones that are successfully used in the retail, banking and hospitality industries. Innovators including Zoeticx, HealthMark, Arcadia Healthcare Solutions, Extension Healthcare, Solace Systems, Oracle, Catavolt, Microsoft, SAP and Kidozen are making inroads against big EHR vendors who have dominated the market for years.
