68% of physician practices say they haven't seen ROI from their EHRs

More than half of physician practices, 67.7 percent, do not believe their EHRs have produced a return on investment, according to the 2015 Tech Survey sponsored by Kareo.

Though physician practices may find ROI to be lacking, they have also seen benefits; 74.6 percent of practices say EHR use has improved patient documentation.

For those physician practices that have not purchased an EHR, cost remains high on the list of concerns. Here are seven statistics on why practices are delaying EHR acquisition and implementation.

•    We don't believe it will improve patient care: 30.9 percent
•    They are too expensive: 28.4 percent
•    We couldn't find the right product: 11.3 percent
•    We're planning on purchasing one within the next year: 10.3 percent
•    We're owned by a hospital and health system, and are waiting implementation of our parent's EHR: 8.8 percent
•    We've heard too many horror stories: 8.3 percent
•    We're thinking of affiliating with or being acquired by a hospital or health system: 2 percent
