Abstract

The influences of information technology have touched almost all aspects of our lives, and health care delivery has been no exception. Law, policy, and regulation have driven the adoption of electronic medical records, particularly over the past decade, driving fundamental changes to the practice of medicine in general and dermatology in particular.This article reviews the history of these changes, the regulations that drove these changes, the intended and unintended consequences of these initiatives, and our insights into the appropriate roles for policy and regulation to drive positive change.
