A study examining the effect of health IT adoption on workflows in small and medium-sized ambulatory practices that are turning into medical homes will be conducted by Billings Clinic in collaboration with the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality. "Unfortunately, health IT systems can fail to generate anticipated results and even carry unintended consequences, which undermine usability and usefulness. Directly or indirectly, health IT may create more work, new work, excessive systems demands, or inefficient workflow," according to the AHRQ.
