In your conversation, determine your interviewee's perspectives on the following:
1. Why was the EMR system instituted?
2. How was the decision made, and what resistance was faced in the decision-making process?
3. What impact on quality in health care has been the result?
4. How does the information gained in the interview match up with your readings/research on the subject? Cite references to support your conclusion.
