About the Book

Previous research on adoption of Electronic Patient Record (EPR) technology has identified qualitative benefits which are difficult to quantify. The aim of this thesis was to investigate the economic benefits and non-technological barriers of full reliance on the EPR. This research focused on the dual (electronic and paper) Laboratory and Medical Imaging results process at Sunnybrook and Women's College Health Sciences Centre. The process was examined thoroughly through interviews with the clinicians and support staff. Analysis of response data revealed significant resources (an estimate of $1,000,000 per year) being consumed by the paper process as well as potential risk of harm to patients. It was concluded that a solely electronic process is the solution and provided recommendations to effectively address the potential barriers to routine EPR use. It should offer a good foundation for other hospitals to pursue a similar approach to EPR technology.
