Implementation of the shared medication record is difficult
The aim of the study was to examine the implementation of the shared medication record (SMR) and the barriers to lack of implementation. The research was done in three hospitals in Denmark. Data showed that SMR was not used systematically in the period 5-19 March 2012 at a hospital in the Capital Region of Denmark. We found that motivation, technical problems, time, and competencies were barriers to using SMR. Although all the doctors liked the idea of SMR, they did not find the present version of SMR to be fully developed for use in practice.
