Usability of Three Graphical User Interfaces for Drug Allergy Documentation

Journal Contribution - Journal Article

The current drug allergy documentation module in the electronic health record of our institution is in a free-text format. Two versions of a structured and coded drug allergy documentation module were developed. Twenty-five physicians tested the three interfaces via 3x5 test scenarios. The usability was measured for each interface with a system usability scale questionnaire. Both new versions scored significantly better than the current free-text version. User feedback will be used to further optimize the new module.
