Recognizing that issues with workflow integration have contributed to slow rates of electronic health records adoption in healthcare settings such as ambulatory outpatient care, the National Institute of Standards and Technology has issued a report on integrating EHR into clinical workflow with recommendations for developers and outpatient care centers.
