Dear Federationists:

The NFB continues to seek your feedback regarding accessibility 
features available within Electronic Health Record (EHR) 
software.  If you are blind and work in the healthcare industry or 
are a student preparing for a career in the healthcare industry and 
encounter EHRs regularly at your job or as a part of your studies, 
NFB needs to hear from you.  In an effort to understand how blind 
individuals are affected by the influx of EHRs, NFB is gathering data 
from members whose job duties or coursework involve entering, 
reviewing, and / or retrieving data within EHRs.  EHRs in question 
may include Epic, Allscripts, Cerner, eClinicalWorks, NextGen and 
other software companies' products.

Please call Valerie Yingling, paralegal, at 410-659-9314 x 2440 to 
share your EHR experiences, both positive and negative.
