Reaping the Benefits of Medical Information Systems


Academic Medicine Volume 71, Number 4, ISSN 1040-2446


This paper proposes that physicians' use of computerized medical information systems in the practice of medicine can assist delivery of cost-effective, high-quality patient care and help expand clinical research. However, benefits can be realized only if clinicians participate in system development and implementation and if senior institutional management demonstrates a sustained commitment to this kind of change.
