Older Doctors More Resistant to EMR

Kaiser Health News reports that older physicians may be resistant to electronic medical records systems implementation. And even meaningful use financial incentives may not be enough for these doctors to get over their aversion to technology. In response, the American Board of Medical Specialties is considering adding health care IT education as part of the board recertification process. The article questions whether “most physicians are ready to jump on board.” I would argue that it doesn’t matter if they are ready, the train is coming: either climb aboard or get run over.
