The impact of EHRs conversion on clinicians' daily work is crucial to evaluate the success of the intervention for Hospitals and to yield valuable insights into quality improvement. To assess the impact of different EHR systems on the preoperative nursing workflow, we used a structured framework combining quantitative time and motion study and qualitative cognitive analysis to characterize, visualize and explain the differences before and after an EHR conversion. The results showed that the EHR conversion brought a significant decrease in the patient case time and a reduced percentage of time using EHR. PreOp nurses spent a higher proportion of time caring for the patient, while the important tasks were completed in a more continuous pattern after the EHR conversion. The workflow variance was due to different nurse's cognitive process and the task time change was reduced because of some new interface features in the new EHR systems.
