EHR deployment costs approach $30,000 per doctor

InformationWeek, February 2, 2012
Physicians are starting to embrace electronic health records en masse, according to a new survey by the Medical Group Management Association. The poll found that around half of the EHRs used by their members lacked many key functions. For example, only 56% of MGMA survey respondents with EHRs said their system could generate problem lists; 49% had EHRs that provided drug interaction warnings. However, with the advent of Meaningful Use, many physicians are switching to more capable EHRs to qualify for government financial incentives.
