Electronic Health Records: Status, Needs and Lessons – 2011 Report Based on 2010 Data

The use of electronic health records (EHRs) by medical practices and other organizations in the United States has increased measurably in the past decade. Despite the potential to improve the quality of patient care and enhance practices' financial performance, the technology remains far from universal.

To better understand the current state of EHR use, MGMA conducted a study funded by PNC Bank to explore the barriers and benefits of EHR adoption. MGMA collected data between Oct. 1, 2010, and Nov. 9, 2010, from 4,588 healthcare organizations nationwide that responded to the survey. The data represent the aggregate experience of more than 120,000 physicians in medical practice.
