ABSTRACT
The article presents a case study on the electronic health records conversion instigated by the Huntington Internal Medical Group (HIMG) in Huntington, West Virginia. It states that the impetus of HIMG's digitalization is its plan to transfer into a 150,000 state-of-the-art facility. The conversion to eletronic health records is indicated as a way for HIMG to cut financial expenses and administrative overhead for off-site storage maintenance of paper documents.
