CDC: Physician electronic health record use soars

Government researchers have found evidence that a federal incentive program may be succeeding at encouraging office-based physicians to make more use of electronic medical record (EMR) and  electronic health record (EHR) systems.

The percentage of practices using some kind of EMR or EHR system has increased to 72 percent this year, from 57 percent in 2011, and from 48 percent in 2009, the year the law creating the program took effect, according to Chun-Ju Hsiao and Esther Hing.
