GAO: Most Medicare docs used EHR in 2011
Modern Healthcare

A majority of physicians participating in Medicare used an electronic health-record system last year, according to a recent government survey.

The Government Accountability Office randomly sampled 2,000 of Medicare’s physicians in 2011 and found that 57% of them were using an EHR at their primary practice location.

The figure mirrors that from a 2011 annual report by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, which found that 57% of all office-based physicians were using an EHR system at their primary practice location.
