Many physicians face the question of whether or not to use the computer as a practice tool. This is especially true in hospitals that have computerized hospital information systems with physician oriented patient care applications. Although concerns persist in some quarters that computer use may be tedious or inappropriate, or even place the physician at risk, computerized hospital information systems offer the physician significant advantages over manual information processing methods, and ultimately benefit patient care.
