The aim of this study was to validate a specially designed electronic medical records (EMRs) questionnaire for use in Taiwan. Published reviews of national trends and EMRs characteristics from seven countries in the Americas, Oceania, Europe, and Asia were used to design the Google-based document. This questionnaire is intended for use by medical institutions, government health units, manufacturers, academic institutions, and the public, and may be administered by information officers, non-IT staff (physicians, nurses, policymakers, vendors), and even people. A modified Delphi method was employed to determine the most appropriate content for the questionnaire. In conclusion, this research demonstrated trend analysis of several national EMRs, and also identified the meaningful use of EMR and establishing governmental EMR office are the important directions for Taiwan EMRs.
