IHA sees clinical performance-IT link improving
Government Health IT, October 7, 2008
California-based physician groups that scored the highest in a recent set of pay-for-performance awards were consistently the most sophisticated users of health IT, according to an analysis by the Integrated Healthcare Association. When the clinical scores of groups were compared, those who rated the highest for the depth of an organization's use of health IT had over 40% higher clinical performance scores than those with the lowest systemness levels, according to the IHA's findings.
