While application of Health Information and Communication Technologies (HICT) has shown the potential to improve health care and reduced cost, the impact of HICT on health care professionals’ job satisfaction and clinician wellness is unknown. Recent studies suggest that the impact of HICT on clinician stress and burnout may be considerable. This study hopes to identify the elements of HICT most associated with clinician stress and identify strategies clinicians use to mitigate these. We will also explore associations between clinician stress and HICT use as well as clinician stress and coping strategies.
