Abstract

The IOM committee proposed creation of a computer-based patient record institute (CPRI) to serve as the leadership entity for establishing a national agenda to develop and adopt computer-based patient records (CPRs). An effort to motivate organizations, strategic individuals, and the public to participate in this collaborative effort requires a national, shared vision. The vision must be viewed as globally important for health care delivery nationally, as well as be of strategic importance to each participating organization in health care. The vision must portray a clear and recognizable improvement over the status quo that is well worth the costs of achieving it. It must be technically feasible and politically credible. Among other functions, computer-based patient record systems must fulfill the following:
  • Provide clinicians with areadily accessible, intelligible assembly of clinical data that characterizes the condition, prior management, and current treatment plan of a patient

  • Provide a clearly defined and well-organized database to permit epidemiologic assessment of patient outcomes and patterns of practice, revealing merits of management strategies in specific clinical contexts

  • Provide interactive decision support tools based on information derived from critically analyzed population data

  • Decrease administrative record keeping and form submission responsibilities that burden health care providers
