Utah doctors among the most 'wired'

The Salt Lake Tribune, January 17, 2011

Utah doctors are among the most “wired,” boasting the nation’s fifth highest adoption rate of electronic medical records.

Nearly 74 percent of the state’s health clinics are paperless — with basic or fully functional IT systems — compared to 51 percent nationally, according to a new national poll by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.

Minnesota, home to the highly touted Mayo Clinic, is No. 1 with 80 percent of its doctor offices digitized, followed by Massachusetts, Wisconsin and North Dakota.
