Physicians’ adoption of outpatient electronic health records

August 22nd, 2008

 The New England Journal of Medicine recently published the results of a national survey of physicians and their attitudes about EHR.

 
 
Few interesting statistics of the survey are:
 
Only  1.5% of all US. Hospitals have full Electronic Records in place. 
 
Four percent of physicians reported having an extensive, fully functional electronic-records system, and 13% reported having a basic system. 
 
 
 
 
Physicians that have adopted are seeing the value in patient safety, operational effectiveness and cost.
