KEY FINDINGS In 2013, 78% of office-based physicians used any type of electronic health record (EHR) system, up from 18% in 2001. In 2013, 48% of office-based physicians reported having a system that met the criteria for a basic system, up from 11% in 2006. The percentage of physicians with basic systems by state ranged from 21% in New Jersey to 83% in North Dakota. In 2013, 69% of office-based physicians reported that they intended to participate (i.e., they planned to apply or already had… Expand

Using Electronic Clinical Quality Measure Reporting for Public Health Surveillance
TLDR
Electronic CQM data were analyzed to assess provider progress toward achieving blood pressure control among their patients with hypertension and found that use of EHR data for public health surveillance could streamline reporting, facilitating more timely and possibly more complete data collection in key areas of public health concern.

TLDR
First, the good news: uptake of electronic health records by US physicians is occurring at a faster pace today than just a few years ago, and Pediatricians have been keeping pace with these overall trends. Expand
The Role of Health Information Technology in Care Coordination in the United States
TLDR
Although a higher percentage of physicians using HIT received patient information necessary for care coordination than those who did not use HIT, more than one third did not routinely receive the needed patient information at all. Expand
Mixing Electronic and Non-Electronic Health Records Limits Physician Productivity - The Arizona Experience
TLDR
The potential productivity of EHRs is severly limited by the typical practice of combining Ehrs with non-electronic records, so reducing the number of different types of records used in a practice will increase the positive effects of E HRs on productivity. Expand
Electronic health records and health care quality over time in a federally qualified health center
TLDR
EHRs were associated with continuing improvement in health care quality for at least 3 years post-implementation in the safety-net setting of a Federally Qualified Health Center in New York State. Expand
Understanding differences in electronic health record (EHR) use: linking individual physicians’ perceptions of uncertainty and EHR use patterns in ambulatory care
TLDR
Evidence is found linking physicians' perceptions of uncertainty with EHR use patterns, which have implications for health IT research, practice, and policy, particularly in terms of impacting health IT design and implementation efforts in ways that consider differences in physicians' perceived uncertainty. Expand
Electronic Health Record Use a Bitter Pill for Many Physicians.
TLDR
It is suggested that although government initiatives to encourage EHR adoption among office-based physician practices have produced positive results, additional support may be required in the future to maintain this momentum. Expand
Use of electronic medical records differs by specialty and office settings.
TLDR
Uptake of EMR is increasing, although it is significantly slower in dermatology, ophthalmology, and psychiatry, and physicians should carefully weigh which, if any, EMR to adopt in their practices. Expand
Impact of the HITECH Act on physicians' adoption of electronic health records
TLDR
The authors find weak evidence of the impact of the MU program on EHR uptake consistent with reports that many current EHR systems reduce physician productivity, lack data sharing capabilities, and need to incorporate other key interoperability features (e.g., application program interfaces). Expand
Errors in Electronic Health Record–Based Data Query of Statin Prescriptions in Patients With Coronary Artery Disease in a Large, Academic, Multispecialty Clinic Practice
TLDR
Sole reliance on EHR data query to measure quality metrics may lead to significant errors in assessing provider performance, and institutions should be cognizant of these potential sources of error. Expand

Electronic health record systems and intent to apply for meaningful use incentives among office-based physician practices: United States, 2001-2011.
TLDR
An increasing trend in EMR/EHR system use among office-based physicians was noted from 2001 through preliminary 2011 estimates, and estimates of physicians’ readiness to meet Stage 1 Core Set meaningful use measures were limited to data collected on the computerized functions needed to meet eight Stage 1 objectives.

Use and characteristics of electronic health record systems among office-based physician practices: United States, 2001-2012.
TLDR
This report describes trends in adoption of electronic medical record or electronic health record (EMR/EHR) systems from 2001 to 2012, as well as physicians' intent to participate in the EHR Incentive Programs and their readiness to meet 13 of the Stage 1 Core Set objectives for "meaningful use" in 2012, the second year of the incentive programs. Expand
Most physicians were eligible for federal incentives in 2011, but few had EHR systems that met meaningful-use criteria.
TLDR
Although the federal Medicare incentives will be available through 2016, and Medicaid incentives through 2021, widespread gaps in readiness throughout the states illustrate the challenges physicians face in meeting the federal schedule for the incentive programs. Expand
The "meaningful use" regulation for electronic health records.
TLDR
The widespread use of electronic health records (EHRs) in the United States is inevitable, but inevitability does not mean easy transition. Expand
