Electronic Health Records (EHRs) provides health ownership for patients to improve health outcomes. However, misalignment happens between clinician and patient expectations and goals using EHRs. This project we investigate the misunderstandings within an existing EHR system through interviewing pregnant patients and healthcare providers specializing in pregnancy within the UPMC network. Potentially, the gathered insights afford a better designed EHR system in the near future.
