July 18, 2016 8:51 AM | Deleted user

AAPA is looking for 10-15 PAs in various specialties who are willing to be interviewed and provide their thoughts and attitudes on the development of clinical apps that would be used via smartphones. The goal of the project is to learn what features and characteristics make medical apps effective and user-friendly for healthcare professionals and to gather information on using an "App Store" approach to enhancing electronic health records (EHR) functionality.

Interviews will be conducted via phone by KLAS marketing research firm and will take no more than 15 minutes. During the interview you will also have an opportunity to provide ideas and suggest questions that will be part of a larger survey that will go out to PAs, physicians, advanced practice nurses in the future.

The project is funded by a grant from the Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology (ONC). ONC is the principal federal entity charged with coordination of nationwide efforts to implement and support the adoption of advanced health information technology within the healthcare arena.

We would appreciate hearing from interested PAs by Friday, July 22.
