This master's thesis will present a literature review and analysis ofthe implementation and use of Electronic Medical Records (EMR). The literature review will discuss reasons that support implementation of EMRs, factors that are necessary for successful implementation and barriers that impede implementation. Also, real-world examples of implementation for medical billing in healthcare organizations will be discussed, as well as the disparity in implementation rates between larger and smaller healthcare organizations.
The analysis portion of this thesis will include data from the 2009 National Ambulatory Medical Survey (NAMCS) EMR Supplement and, through the application of the Chi-Square statistical test using SPSS, will assess whether size of the medical practice in terms of number of physicians is significantly associated with EMR implementation and functionality, the latter of which includes clinical reminders and prescription ordering. It will be shown that physician size is indeed significantly associated with implementation and functionality.
