Ian PUN, MD, Family Physician, Scarborough, Ontario.
OSCAR McMaster EMR user since 2010.
As of 2014, over 75% of primary care physicians in Ontario have adopted,1 or are in the process of adopting an EMR. Those physicians who are new to using EMR will find many pitfalls, many of which are common and are preventable. I will specifically deal with the OSCAR McMASTER EMR and what issues I saw my fellow colleagues and myself experience in the Ontario context.
