The drivers that are dependent upon are many.   There are legal requirements, business drivers, and care programs that can affect the changing processes as well (Tripathi, 2012). The incentive programs are currently looked upon as the meaningful use, however the drivers listed are the change bearers for the medical future (Tripathi, 2012).
The history of Electronic Health Record technology is dated back as early as 1968 (Tripathi, 2012).   As technology grew further so did the enhancement of medical...
