Peer Support - How Important is the Assistance of Colleagues when Adopting an EMR?
Posted Oct 30 2008 3:21pm
Much work has been done internationally to accelerate the adoption and use of Electronic Medical Record systems by physicians and their staff. The influence and support of 'peers' is felt to be very important. Peers include colleagues in the same practice or in the community who are experienced users of technology and EMR. These individuals are felt to be important influencers and teachers/educators of others.
Have you perhaps taken on the role of a trusted peer in your practice or in your community? How important do you think this role is in terms of moving ahead the adoption of tools like EMRs? Do you know peers in your community who play this role?
