Is age a factor in coverting to EMR?

Your first time here? Welcome, I'm glad you've dropped in.... David Soul (aka Bricoleur)

In this discussion in the CanadianEMR (including 5 comments),  many physicians who are reaching the end of their careers (i.e. in the
last 5 years of practice) consider that it is not worth their effort or
the cost to move to an EMR based practice. Many see their age as a
potential barrier.  Dr. Brookstone himself feels quite differently however:

“My impression is that age is not a limitation and that physicians who
are considering retirement in the last 5 to 10 years of their practice
should consider implementing EMR.”
