Only 14.1% of US medical group practices use an electronic health record (EHR) system and fewer still—11.5%—have fully implemented such a system, according to findings from a study of more than 3300 medical group practices. The Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality–funded study was conducted by the Medical Group Management Association Center for Research and the University of Minnesota School of Public Health (Gans et al. Health Aff (Millwood). 2005;24:1323-1333).
