Perceived efficiency impacts following electronic health record implementation: An exploratory study of an urban community health center network
Purpose: Faced with an increasingly complex patient population and growing demand for services, community health centers (CHCs) are recognizing that electronic health records (EHRs) may help their efforts to improve efficiency in care delivery. Yet little is known about the benefits, challenges, and specific impacts of EHR implementation in the often resource-constrained CHC environment, especially from users' perspectives. The objective of this study was to explore EHR users' perspectives about the EHR implementation process and impact in a CHC network.
