ABSTRACT
The article presents a research on the effect of computer reminders on physicians' behavior towards their routine activities. Several databases were scanned to evaluate the improvements brought by computer reminders in physicians' care outcomes and process. The results found that the improvements were not that significant. It concludes that improvements from computer reminders are much smaller than those expected from electronic medical record systems and computerized order entry.
