Modern Healthcare

Rates of electronic health-record system adoption among office-based physicians grew significantly in 2011, according to a national report card on EHR adoption. In a survey conducted by the National Center for Health Statistics between February and June, 56.9% of physician respondents said their practice uses electronic health records in some capacity other than for billing. That’s up from the 50.7% of respondents who replied the same in 2010 (PDF).
