Despite substantial progress in EHR adoption, health information exchange and patient engagement remain low in office settings.
The authors investigated the growth of EHR adoption. They found gaps in EHR adoption, with physicians in solo practices and non-primary care specialties lagging behind others; exchange with other providers was limited, with only 14 percent sharing data with providers outside their organization; and 24 percent routinely provided patients with the ability to view online, download, or transmit their health record.
