Less than Half of All Physicians Meet Federal Standards for EHRs

The 2011 Physician Workflow Survey indicates that 42 percent of all physicians have Electronic Health Record systems that meet federal standards.

Among the most likely physician specialties to meet this requirement were cardiovascular disease specialists (69 percent) and practitioners of internal medicine (50 percent), while ophthalmologists (25 percent) and psychiatrists (19 percent) were least likely.
