EHR Adoption Rates On The Rise at Physician Sites


Physician EHR adoption rates rise by 2% since October 2010, with hospitals and health systems having the highest rates.

Slowly but surely, physician EHR adoption rates are on the rise.  Research results reported last month by SK&A, A Cegedim Company, shows that overall adoption is at 40%, a 2% rise since October of 2010.  The highest adoption levels come from practices owned by hospitals and health systems at 60%, which is a 6% increase since October.  The research is based on telephone survey of 237,562 U.S. medical sites.  The report updates metrics from October of 2010 to July of 2011 for “Physician Office Usage of Electronic Healthcare Records Software” across a variety of categories including

  • by number of physicians at site
  • by number of exam rooms at site
  • by average daily patient volume
  • by application
  • by site ownership
  • by region
  • by medical specialty
  • by state
