More Than 1,000 Maryland Physicians Sign Up For EHRs, Connectivity

More than 1,000 primary care physicians in Maryland have signed up to adopt electronic health records and connect to other providers through a health information exchange, according to a Baltimore Sun news report.

These primary care physicians are eligible to win incentive funds for demonstrating meaningful use of their EHRs and for being a part of the HIE. Hundreds of other physicians are also using the technology but may not be connected to the network, according to the news report. The state hopes to establish an infrastructure that would support a statewide health information exchange among healthcare providers by 2012.
