Factors Affecting EMR Success
We know that failure of EMR can be costly to a medical practice. How do can we measure the cost of failure? So how do we improve the odds against it happening?
Dr. Karim Keshayjee, an associate member of McMaster University’s Centre for the Evaluation of Medicines, and four colleagues set out to find answers to those questions.
Dr. Keshayjee says, “We know the failure rate is higher than fifty percent.” So Dr. Keshayjee’s team reviewed 1,100 published articles on EMR, distilling that to fifty EMR implementation articles. From that, they eventually came up with a list of 17 factors that may affect EMR success.
