KPMG Study - 71% of Healthcare Providers are Over 50% Complete with the Implemention Electronic Medical Records

According to a new poll from consultancy KPMG, the 71% of the hospital and health system business leaders said they are more than 50% of the way to completing EHR system adoption.
"In the long-term, EHR implementation is a critical driver for clinical and other business intelligence mandates." - Joe Kuehn, partner in KPMG Healthcare financial management
The KPMG Healthcare & Pharmaceutical Institute conducted a webcast on meaningful use Stage 1 and Stage 2 requirements last month. The results reflect responses from more than 250 hospital and health system administrators who self selected to participate in the webcast poll. Respondents consisted of senior members of these organizations who have awareness of, or responsibility for, their organizations' IT and finance programs.
