Description

Governmental incentives to stimulate the "meaningful use" of electronic medical records and future disincentives for Medicaid and Medicare provide an impetus for dermatologists to consider adding this technology to their clinical practice. Dermatologists should carefully weigh the pros and cons of establishing an electronic medical record system before incorporating this expensive technology. This article reviews available scientific and economic data required for dermatologists to help make an informed choice.
