Resource Summary: Health Center Connections, the HCCN organized and supported by the Community Care Network of Kansas, created this survey to ask clinicians at participating health centers about their work environment, productivity, health IT in use, and health IT interventions. The intent of the survey is to collect information from clinicians that can identify opportunities to reduce provider burden through the use of health IT.
Resource Details: The path to developing the Provider Health IT Experience Survey included research, review, and collaboration. To begin, Health Center Connections staff reviewed the KLAS Research Arch Collaborative Survey, the SOPS® Medical Office Survey, and other surveys found through Internet searches. Staff then identified questions from those surveys that supported the intent of the planned survey. The questions were modified and used to create a sample survey, which was presented to the governance committee for consideration along with the KLAS Arch Collaborative Survey. The governance committee elected to proceed with the sample survey and formed a subcommittee of four health center representatives to refine the survey. The result was the 21-question Provider Health IT Experience Survey, which was distributed to clinicians in nine participating health centers in February and March 2021. Each participating health center received a copy of their clinicians’ survey responses. Survey responses are also being used to inform future training and technical assistance.
