Modern Healthcare

American hospitals fall into three groups in their adoption of electronic health records, according to a study in Health Affairs embargoed for a Thursday morning release. A small set of high achievers represents 5.8% of hospitals. These can meet the second-stage standards set forth by the federal government. A larger second group is in the middle, representing 53.1% of hospitals. These have adopted either a basic or comprehensive record. Last, a significant minority has neither a basic nor comprehensive record, making up the remaining 41.1%.
