In the past decade, electronic notes have increased in length. This ‘note bloat’ can create inefficiencies and has been attributed to copying of information from one note to another. Our study demonstrates that templated content is an important contributor to ‘note bloat’ regardless of the note’s author or length. Recognizing the role of templated content as a leading contributor to note bloat may aid in re-designing note templates to reduce that effect.
Describe the new knowledge and additional skills the participant will gain after attending your presentation.: Participants will be able to recognize templated content as an important driver of note bloat. Recognizing the role of templated content as a leading contributor to note bloat may aid in re-designing note templates to reduce that effect and thus improve note efficiencies.
