Hospital Management and Electronic Health Records

\r\n Adoption and utilization of EHRs are increasing rapidly but variable, given pressures of financial incentives, policy and technological advancement. Adoption is outpacing published evidence, but there is a growing body of descriptive literature regarding incentives, benefits, risks, and costs of adoption and utilization. Further, there is a rising body of evidence that EHRs can bring benefits to processes and outcomes, and that their implementation can be considered as a healthcare management strategy. Obstetrics and gynaecology practices have specific needs, which must be addressed in the adoption of such technology. Specialty-specific literature is sparse but should be considered as part of any strategy aimed at achieving quality improvement and practice behavior change. Obstetrics and gynecologic practice present unique challenges to the effective adoption and use of EHR technologies, but there is a promise as the technologies, integration, and usability are rapidly improving. This technology will have an increasing impact on the practice of obstetrics and gynecology in the coming years.
