Compare and contrast the similarities and differences between the electronic health record
and the paper record. Identify the future direction of health record keeping. Discuss the
problems that may arise in the future as a result of many groups unwillingness to adopt the
electronic health record as well as how changes to medical care (IE Affordable Care Act)
can impact record keeping. Conduct a cost benefit analysis between two similar
organizations, one of whom chooses to adopt the electronic health records in their
organization and one who does not.
