ABSTRACT
The practice of medicine is a business of communications. Communications can be facilitated by technology. Healthcare providers organized in medical practices, hospitals, and nursing homes have tremendous needs to effectively communicate within their organizations and between their organizations. The focus on electronic medical records comes not only from the need to communicate but also from a desire to reduce administrative costs and to improve services and quality of care to patients. Frustration with the inadequacies of a paper chart-filing system drives providers in all delivery venues toward technology at an increasing rate. Implementation barriers to technology adoption in medical practices can be overcome by incremental approaches and knowledge-transfer assistance from affiliated community healthcare partners such as hospitals.
