- This study undertook a literature survey to provide a taxonomy that represents research areas of Electronic Medical Record (EMR). We identified the following areas of research and classified them into eight main categories: design and implementation, evaluation, adoption, impacts, medical research, integration, EMR data design and management, and policy and standards. Even though EMR improves care quality and efficiency in a positive way, some negative perceptions by the health user community (health professionals and health service managers) should not be neglected. By categorizing EMR research articles, we reveal a clear set of grand challenges of EMR in the future education and research in health informatics, biomedical engineering, and related areas. A big picture of EMR research areas presented in this study helps health community to find scientific methods for various grand challenges in EMR.
