Abstract

Increasing the efficiency of the healthcare system in the United States is an important subject due to rapidly rising costs. Among many propositions to improve the operation of the system, adoption of Electronic Health Records is widely discussed. This study uses a system dynamics methodology to develop a simulation model of the adoption process that will allow for the exploration of policies. This paper presents the development and the preliminary findings of this model.
