Position Statement: Supporting access to data in electronic medical records for quality improvement and research

Family practices across Canada continue to adopt electronic medical records (EMRs) at a rapid pace. The proportion of family physicians using EMRs has quadrupled in recent years, growing to 85 per cent in 2017 from 16 per cent in 2004. EMR uptake has been successful in part due to substantial government support, which has included publicly funded subsidies for family practices.
