CDC Report: EMR and EHR Use by Office-based Physicians

The CDC has released a report titled, "Electronic Medical Record/Electronic Health Record Systems of Office-based Physicians: United States, 2009 and Preliminary 2010 State Estimates."

Preliminary 2010 estimates from the mail survey showed that the percentage of physicians using all or partial EMR/EHR systems by state ranged from 38.1% to 80.2% (Figure 2). The percentage of physicians having systems that met the criteria of a basic system by state ranged from 12.5% to 51.5% (Figure 3). Excluding 27 states with unreliable estimates, the percentage of physicians having systems that met the criteria of a fully functional system across the United States ranged from 9.7% to 27.2% (data not shown).


Here are some interesting figures that demonstrate how the utilization of EHRs is changing in the United States:
