This study investigated the electronic medical record system (EMR) of Zonguldak Karaelmas University Hospital which is in use for the last six years. The recommendations for the development of EMR and more efficient use of the system are principle goal of this study. The purposes of this study include promoting the implementation of EMR by introducing the advantages and disadvantages from the user’s point of view. While the successful applications of EMR systems are evident in western word, the implementation of EMR to a hospital information system is a new topic in Turkey. Some applications are mainly in the form of converting the paper-based medical record systems to the fully automated electronic record systems. Our study is a pioneering attempt to analyze the users’ opinion for a fully integrated EMR system in a Turkish academic hospital. The suggestions such as restricting the access, improving the hardware, integrating to the internet are made for the improvement of the system in future.
