Abstract

One of the challenges facing those who favour the use of Electronic Health Records (EHR's) is physician adoption of Electronic Medical Records (EMR), the computerized replacement for the doctors’ chart. A number of factors, including cost, business process disruption, lack of technology familiarity, and support are commonly cited as reasons why adoption among practicing physicians is slow (Anderson, 2007; Daly, 2006; Miller & Sim, 2004). Many cling to the hope that, as the less technologically inclined begin to retire from practice, the new physicians entering practice will replace them and their paper charts with an EMR.
