Three key measurements are critical in such an evaluation; one is time requirements, clinical volumes and the nature of clinical documentation. The traditional paper-based way clinical documentation has over time become overwhelmed by demands in information exchange among health care providers, legal and financial complexities of the modern healthcare environment, the growing chronic care needs from an aging population, the rising rate of biomedical knowledge and the medical errors linked to handwritten notes (Aldosari, 2017). Advances in communication and computer technology have transformed the world including the medical world drastically. The utilization of the technology within the clinical medicine area via the implementation and design of the EHR systems is an emerging strategy in solving the problems (Chiang et al. 2013). The medical institute has over the past decade characterized EHR as a crucial technology for improving the quality, efficiency, and safety of the healthcare system. Methods The first step would be to define a study population which would include faculty providers who have worked a year prior and a year after the implementation of the technology. The next crucial step would be the collection of clinical volumes and the time length of every patient encounter from the EHR reporting system. For direct comparison, it is crucial to have two
