Canadian Collaborative Centre for Physician Resources, December, 2011.
“Significant changes were seen in record keeping systems since the 2007 National Physician Survey. In 2010, 38% of physicians reported having paper charts only, down from 58% in 2007. Use of a combination of paper and electronic records increased from 26% of physicians to 34% and the use of electronic records instead of paper charts rose from 10% to 16%. Alberta was ahead of all other provinces with two-thirds of physicians using only electronic records or a combination of paper and electronic records. Quebec had the smallest proportion with less than a third (32%).”
