Based on the most recent survey of American ophthalmologists, approximately 80% of ophthalmology practices have deployed an electronic health record (EHR) and the remaining practices have no plans to make the change.1 Given that we have likely reached maximal EHR penetration in ophthalmology, our attention should now be turned to understanding how these information systems might be best used to support patient care. One important aspect of EHRs in this regard is the degree to which they do or do not support efficiency in typically busy ophthalmology practices.
