Hospital EHR Adoption Increased

Adoption of electronic health records (EHRs) by hospitals has significantly increased over the last several years, according to American Hospital Association's 2013 Health IT survey.

The survey found that adoption of EHRs has increased more than five-fold over the last five years. Specifically, 93% of hospitals in 2013 reported being "in possession" of an EHR system that received meaningful use certification.
