15% of physicians declining EHRs
Nearly all U.S. doctors responding to a recent Accenture survey said they use electronic health records (EHRs). But a new report from Deloitte shows a somewhat different picture: Just two-thirds of physicians said they have an EHR capable of showing Meaningful Use (MU), and 45% of the remaining third, or about 15% of all respondents, said they have no plans to purchase an EHR that meets MU criteria. Both surveys were done at the same time, and both included about the same number of American physicians. Accenture polled 3,700 physicians in eight countries, including 500 U.S. doctors; Deloitte's survey involved just over 500 randomly selected, responding physicians from the AMA Masterfile.
