AbstractObjectives: To investigate the impact of electronic health record (EHR) on diabetes management through examination of the effectiveness of implementation of EHR and to improve the quality of care and the cost-effectiveness on the use of EHR. Methods: Three databases, PubMed, Ovid Medline and Google Scholar, were searched with specific combination keywords including electronic medical record and electronic health record, and diabetes. Quality appraisal and extraction of data were conducted on literature that met with the inclusion criteria. Results: 10 literature studies, a total of 204,251 participants with diabetes, were included in this study. All subjects, with similar demographic and clinical characteristics, were from clinic and primary care setting with the use of EHR. Different outcome measures were compared and to evaluate the effectiveness of EHR on quality of care and cost-effectiveness. Discussion: The impact of EHR on effectiveness of diabetes management, potential factors of barrier for adoption and the limitation for implementation of EHR were discussed. These suggested that further research is needed to have stronger evidence to widespread the use of EHR in Hong Kong as a future direction on public health issue. Conclusion: In this systematic review, EHR showed potential benefit in improving the quality of care and reduce the health care expenditure for long term running. Patient safety and efficiency are yet to be covered in the studies. Further research is needed on the acceptability and applicability of the use of EHR in Hong Kong.
