New Data on Electronic Health Records (EHR) Adoption

A new report from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, Harvard School of Public Health and Mathematica Policy Research presents new data on electronic health records (EHR) adoption.  According to the report, “Physicians reporting use of any EHR reached 57 percent in 2011, a substantial increase from 17 percent in 2002, while adoption of at least a basic system grew from 12 percent to 34 percent over the same time period.  The rate of adoption of at least a basic EHR system increased more quickly among primary care physicians, younger physicians, practices of three or more physicians, and those in the Northeast region of the United States”:  http://www.rwjf.org/qualityequality/product.jsp?id=74262.
