Engaging Physicians in the Use of Electronic Medical Records

Alan Brookstone and Clay Braziller

Abstract

Although this article could be applied to physicians across all specialties, our focus is on the engagement of Canadian primary care physicians in the use of Electronic Medical Record (EMR) systems. The objective of our article is to suggest a methodology that can be followed in order to assist in the physician's adoption of EMR.

It would be presumptuous to state that we have all the answers when it comes to an issue as complex as the adoption of EMR by physicians; however, there are broad principles that can provide an organized and logical approach towards the implementation of these systems.
