EMR Usability

We're still struggling with our EMR .. and beginning (again) the process of reviwing alternatives. 

When I read EMR evaluations, I'm often struck by the absence of usability studies.  While the vendors have lots of feature "bullets" … usability remains largely unmeasured and hard to compare.

I'm thinking of creating a survey to capture a few important usability metrics.

Something like this pilot survey … but with more questions.

I'm trying to think of what the questions should be.  Pelase leave comments if you have suggestsions for very simple questions .. and please do fill out the pilot survey and give me feedback about that too.
