A Bold Vision: The Computer-based Patient Record Institute

  • Richard Dick
Part of the Computers in Health Care book series (HI)


During the deliberations of the Institute of Medicine’s (IOM) committee for improving the patient record, it became apparent that a sustained, coordinated, and concentrated effort will be required to establish the widespread use of computerbased patient records (CPRs) and CPR systems. Therefore, the committee recommended the establishment of a public/private initiative which they called the Computer-Based Patient Record Institute (CPRI). Simply stated, the mission of the CPRI will be to initiate and coordinate activities facilitating and promoting the routine use of the CPRs throughout health care.
