What’s your perspective on EMRs?

A roundtable discussion on electronic medical record systems

Medical practices have gradually begun adopting electronic medical record (EMR) systems, and recent funding opportunities under the American Reinvestment and Recovery Act may facilitate that shift. But is it an advisable strategy for all practices?

AAOS Now explored the issue with five physicians: Jon M. Maxwell, MD, a solo practitioner in Adrian, Mich.; Robert Blotter, MD, a general orthopaedist in a small group practice in Marquette, Mich.; Charles E. Rhoades, MD, a member of a 14-surgeon practice in Mission Hills, Kans.; Michele M. Zembo, MD, MBA, professor of orthopaedics at Tulane Medical Center in New Orleans; and Robert Lynch, MD, the former national chair of the Veterans Administration EMR committee and current CEO of Tulane University, New Orleans.
