EPR Norwegian study
A study by researchers at The Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU) has found that GP electronic patient records in Norway has led to better availability of records, but unsatisfactory access to information.
The study by academics Tom Christensen and Anders Grimsmo says that the deployment of EPRs at GPs facilities across the country has been successful, but problems still need tackling.
In a research paper for the BioMed Central Medical Informatics and Decision Making journal, the academics say: “Although GPs are generally satisfied with their EPRs systems, there are still unmet needs and functionality to be covered. It is urgent to find methods that can make a better representation of information in large patient records as well as prevent EPRs from contributing to increased administrative workload of physicians.”
