Everyone wants Electronic Medical Records (EMR) systems. Yet, the adoption rate in the U.S. is very low. 17% of physicians have EMRs; only 4% actually use them. Clearly, physicians have a real problem using EMRs.
Having worked with with physicians and administrators we've learned that improving adoption rates requires understanding the skills and needs of physicians within a clinic. Out-of-the-box solutions rarely work in such personalized environments. Customize functionality and user interfaces are becoming the norm in a quality EMR implementation.
