Abstract

The promise of the electronic health record is to provide multiple functions including the ability to easily share information among providers, the ability to order studies, the ability to improve the safety of patients, and the ability to coordinate plans of care. Efforts to achieve these goals face multiple challenges including large expenditures of money, large expenditures of time and effort, and a persistent communication gap between the designers and the users of these electronic medical records.
