The BC Medical Association has taken the position that it supports the creation of electronically-based patient
record systems that focus on improving quality of care
for patients. At the same time they express concern that:
considerable federal, provincial, and regional resources
are being dedicated towards promoting and investigating
electronic record initiatives and pilot studies.
The BCMA is concerned that the focus of many of these
initiatives are overly geared towards administrative
and surveillance purposes. The primary objective
of any electronic record system must be to improve patient
care while respecting individual privacy rights.”
