Study: EHR Adoption by Family Physicians has Doubled Since 2005

A new study, published in the Annals of Family Medicine, has found that the electronic health record adoption by family physicians has doubled since 2005 and is likely to surpass 80 percent by the end of 2013.

Researchers analyzed data from a census survey completed by candidates applying for the American Board of Family Medicine maintenance of certification examination and the National Ambulatory Medical Care Survey.

The study found that EHR adoption by family physicians reached approximately 67 percent nationally in 2011. It also found that family physicians are adopting EHRs at a higher rate than other office-based physicians as a group. At the state level, however, adoption varies.
