Introduction to the Chapter

The Dissertation title is Barriers and Incentives to Adopting Electronic Medical Records. The chapter starts with the background of the issue with insight about the gradual Computerization of Health information. The latest software innovation towards electronic reord keeping is discussed. Also the wide scope to which this software is applicable is discussed. The software has been a major development in the automation of the record keeping, that was earlier done manually. This sheds light on the potential benefits, including time-saving and cost-effectiveness, that the software implamentation is likely to bring on large scales. So far the users' feedback and reaction to the particular system is also taken into account. The chapter further outlines the conceptual framework of the study. The nature of the study is discussed in detailed with an account of what the study aims to achieve. How effective could the present sstudy be is discussed in the scope. The chapter also focuses on the potential limitations of the study.


Computerization of Health Information

The proposed study is of graeat consequence in providing health services to the people. A highly important system is automated that might bring in soct-effective and time-saving solutions to the problem. If EMR is properly understood and adequately implemented in the hospitals, a uniformity and clarity as well as transparency could be achieved in record keeping. It is widely recognized that computerization of health ...
