“Some physicians in all provinces use a combination of EMRs and paper charts. The combined use of EMRs and paper charts by physicians increased from 26% to 34% over 3 years. The most recent 2010 data showed that 39% of physicians used electronic records to enter and retrieve clinical patient notes, 20% used electronic reminders for recommended patient care, and 20% used electronic warnings for adverse prescribing and drug interactions.”
The National Physician Survey is produced by the CFPC, the CMA, and the Royal College. Our data is drawn from surveys sent to every licensed physician in Canada as well as to all Canadian medical residents and students.
