The electronic medical record: Diving into a shallow pool?

Abstract

The rush to adopt the electronic medical record (EMR) has accelerated since the signing of the Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health (HITECH) Act, part of the American Recovery and Reinvestment (ie, the Stimulus) Act of 2009. The HITECH Act provides incentives for physicians to adopt EMRs. However, I fear that our mad rush to complete adoption of the hodgepodge of currently available EMR systems may have unforeseen and unintended consequences. A skeptical look at several unresolved issues is warranted.
