Table 2 Key Themes from Health Center Focus Groups

From: Can disability accommodation needs stored in electronic health records help providers prepare for patient visits? A qualitative study

Key Themes

1: Accommodation needs generally are not known in advance of the patient’s visit.

2: EHR systems offer helpful information, but with usage challenges and information gaps.

3: Accommodations do occur at health visits but often are developed at the time of the visit.

4: Knowledge of a regular patient is often the basis for advanced accommodation preparation.

5: Providers acknowledge the benefit of preparation for accommodation needs and are supportive of methods to enable it.
