Improved use of the core health record, what discourage and what encourage the use of e-health?

Description

The study is a desire to increase knowledge about how health professionals use e-health in general, and the introduction and use of core health records in particular.

The first study, New knowledge on medical practitioners' experiences with core medical record, will shed light on medical practitioners' experiences with the use of core medical record. The study is a qualitative in-depth study and will be carried out in Trondheim, the first Norwegian health region to implement the core medical record. The study will include interviews with 25 medical practitioners from accident and emergency units and GP medical offices.

The second study, Map any organizational patterns and variations in how core medical records have been introduced in the various regional and local health authorities, and identify learning points for future implementations, focuses on what project managers and regional and local health authorities have done to promote the use of the core medical record, and what they see as the most important inhibitory factors for the introduction of a core medical record. This study is nationwide and includes 12 qualitative interviews with project managers from all health regions.

  1. New knowledge on medical practitioners' experiences with the core medical record.
