re: 15% Of Physicians Declining EHRs: Deloitte Survey
I think the numbers accurately reflect what you would expect to see in the healthcare environment. Those physicians in solo or smaller practices would be more reluctant to adopt EHRs because of the costs, how comfortable they are with their current workflow and because they donG«÷t have larger organizations forcing them to incorporate the EHR systems. I think that as the new generation of physicians and patients starts coming into place we will see more of a reliance on EHR systems and health IT apps, as well as more electronic communication with patients.
