Over the past decade, the political impetus for change in almost all western countries has become stronger and stronger. Evidence has increasingly shown that the current systems are not delivering sufficiently safe, high quality, efficient and cost effective healthcare and that computerization, with EMR at the centre, is effectively the only way forward. As a result, physicians and healthcare organizations around the world are now looking to adopt more EMR technologies and major companies in the market are vying for various collaborations to reach office-based physicians. Governments in Australia, Canada, Denmark, Finland, France, New Zealand, the UK, the US and other countries have announced and are implementing plans to build integrated computer-based national healthcare infrastructures based around the deployment of interoperable EMR systems. Many of these countries aim to have EMR systems deployed for their populations within the next 10 years.
