Suppa, Armando; Bullini Orlandi, Ludovico; Zardini, Alessandro and Pierce, Paul LU (2018)
Abstract (Swedish)
In the last years the use of information communication technologies (ICTs) has become a leading driver of OECD national health systems to improve healthcare quality and reduce healthcare costs (Oecd, 2010).

We analysed the experience of developing and implementing an electronic medical record, core element of a EHR, by the Azienda Ospedaliera Universitaria Integrata (Integrated... (More)
