Study: Rural hospitals lag in EHR progression
from By Scott E. Rupp
The federal EHR incentive plan has paid dividends in getting health systems to adopt electronic health records, but small hospitals still lag behind, even after nearly five years. These are the findings from a new study featuring nationwide data collected from 2008-2014. Julia Adler-Milstein, an assistant professor and researcher at the University of Michigan School of Information and School of Public Health, led the research, which analyzed data from the American Hospital Association Survey-IT Supplement for information technology adoption.
