EHR or Not?

The Louisiana State Medical Society (LSMS) wants to know why physicians don't incorporate electronic health records (EHRs) in their practices. LSMS is conducting a nationwide survey of physicians' adoption of EHRs. The society received a Physicians Foundation grant to expand on a previous statewide study.

The report on the national survey will address:

  • Factors that discriminate between non-adopters and adopters;
  • The presence of specific regional drivers (or inhibitors) of EHR adoption; and
  • The patterns of adopters that lead to meaningful use.

Physicians who take the survey are eligible to win an e-reader.
