With the push to streamline medical records and the use of electronic medical records system technology on the rise, successful implementation is important. The push is due in part for the need to reduce unnecessary paperwork, increase reimbursement, increase quality of medical records and increase overall quality of care. Factors to consider are the effects of implementation on quality of care, quality of medical records, physician and staff perceptions, working conditions, patient satisfaction, cost and barriers. Implementation may have a positive, negative or neutral effect on these factors making the need to review literature and report outcomes significant.
