Text Description is below the image.
  • MyChart enrollment rate is too low to yield enough heart failure patients for our analysis
    • An opt-in strategy greatly limits impact
    • An opt-in strategy tends to exclude the elderly with multiple chronic illnesses—the very group which may benefit the most
  • MyChart hasn't integrated well into ED workflow
    • Too few hits in ED to ensure good workflow integration or reliable use
    • Login names and passwords are not uppermost in patients' minds in urgent situations
    • ED not equipped to provide keyboard access to patients
