Given that there is increasing pressure to use information technology in physician practice, small and medium practices are not adopting them at a rapid pace. This research looks into a medium and a small practice to examine financial and non-financial considerations that may impact the decision to implement electronic medical records in small and medium practices. The financial considerations show that while it is definitely beneficial to implement such a system in a medium sized practice, the financial benefit may be marginal for small practice. Factoring in non-financial factors, the decision may not always be appealing to small physician practices.
