Quick Facts

1.2 Billion

Approximately 1.2 billion clinical documents are produced in the U.S. each year, comprising around 60% of all clinical data

6 Hours

Primary care physicians spend more than half of their workday, nearly 6 hours, interacting with the EHR

32%

Nearly a third of EHR time by primary care physicians is spent reviewing the patient record and evidence-based resources

45-64%

Around half of all questions arising during clinical care are not pursued by healthcare providers at the point of care
