Twenty-nine percent of surveyed U.S. physicians working in a solo practice had adopted an electronic health record system in 2011, according to a report by CDC's National Center for Health Statistics.
The survey found that 60% of surveyed doctors working in a two-physician practice and 62% of surveyed doctors working in a practice with between three and 10 physicians had adopted an EHR system in 2011. Eighty-six percent of surveyed physicians working in a practice with 11 or more doctors had adopted an EHR system in 2011, according to the report.
The report is based on information from 3,180 office-based physicians who responded to the mailed Physician Workflow questionnaire in CDC's 2011 National Ambulatory Medical Care Survey.
