Notifiable condition reporting practices: implications for public health agency participation in a health information exchange.
The researchers sought to better understand the barriers to and burden of notifiable condition reporting from the perspectives of clinic physicians, interviews with clinic reporters, and interviews with public health workers involved in reporting workflow. A strong recommendation generated by their findings is that, given their central role in reporting, clinic reporters are a significant target audience for public health outreach and education that aims to alleviate perceived reporting burden and improve reporting knowledge.

Electronic medical records and physician stress in primary care: results from the MEMO Study.
In this paper, the investigators assessed relationships between the number of EMR functions, primary care work conditions, and physician satisfaction, stress and burnout. The authors concluded that stress may rise for physicians with a moderate number of EMR functions; they found that time pressure was associated with poor physician outcomes mainly in the high EMR cluster.
