    Clinicians’ cognitive workloads more than doubled during the first six months after a new electronic health records system was implemented at two of Carle Health System’s urgent care clinics. Co-authors of the study included Daniel G. Morrow, a professor of educational psychology at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign, and Karen Dunn Lopez, the director of the Center for Nursing Classification and Clinical Effectiveness at the University of Iowa.
