Abstract

This study used eye-tracking to understand how the order of note sections influences the way physicians read electronic progress notes. Participants (n=7) wore an eye-tracking device while reviewing progress notes for four patient cases and then provided a verbal summary. We reviewed and analyzed verbal summaries and eye tracking recordings. Wide variation in reading behaviors existed. There was no relationship between time spent reading a section and section origin of verbal summaries.
