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

In an article in the BC Medical Journal Dr Brookstone, a family physician in Richmond, BC and, for the  past 2
years,  a user of an electronic medical record system in his practice, writes:

“The promise of electronic medical records is great, but much
careful planning is needed before we will reap the benefits.”

In the piece Dr. Brookstone expresses his views on barriers to implementation, efficiencies gained vs the cost value gap, and preparations needed for change.
 The article appeared in BC Medical Journal 
Volume 46, Number 5, June 2004, page 233-235 and can be found at BCMJ June 2004
