EMRs Slow to Catch On: Interesting article on the difficulty in getting medical professionals to switch from paper to digital/electronic. There are good reasons for the resistance, rather than mere stubbornness. Sure, electronic/digital promises some real improvements, like a reduction in medical errors and drug interaction problems, but there are definitely downsides, like privacy and risk of system failure.
