Abstract

This second paper in a series of five looks at how computing in primary care began and provides background to the driving forces for automation in Danish and New Zealand primary care physician offices. It addresses topics such as government funding support, the role of professional colleges and associations, peer influence, change management, and comparative cultures. It also highlights the power of a unifying organisation and introduces the concept of a Health Systems Integrator.
