  Title Chiropractic physicians: A functional conceptualization of electronic medical records technology and the society, culture, and personality model in the delivery of healthcare
Journal J Chiropr Humanit. 2008 ;15():10-18
Peer Review Yes
Publication Type Article
Abstract/Notes Objective: The purpose of this paper is to provide a theoretical functional framework for chiropractic physicians on how the society, culture, and personality (SCP) model is an essential tool for enhancing the understanding of socially meaningful interaction through the use of electronic medical records (EMR) technology in the healthcare institution.

Discussion: The numerous capabilities of EMR technology can provide many benefits currently unavailable with paper-based records; thus, EMR technology can create new communication opportunities to cultivate improvements through socially meaningful interaction. However, adoption does not guarantee EMR system operability or patient satisfaction with the care process. Successful migrations to EMR technology may possibly require healthcare organizations to incorporate concepts from SCP into the delivery of care. As technological advances occur, it is essential for chiropractors to remember that a patient is a distinct individual who happens to have an ailment, rather than simply the ailment. The SCP model will help to maintain the chiropractor-patient relationship amidst the changes within the social milieu.

Conclusion: There is a need for chiropractors to re-examine how factors such as social class, age, racial, ethnic, family, religious background, and technical competency influence how they utilize electronic medical records technology to deliver care. These factors can help shape treatment strategies based upon the patient’s background and chiropractor’s technical ability to employ EMR technology to bring about greater socially meaningful interaction.
