The California HealthCare Foundation recently published a report on California physicians'
experience with electronic health records (EHRs) in 2011. The report summarizes
findings from a survey that a team of researchers at the University of California,
San Francisco conducted in partnership with the Medical Board of California. The
survey found that EHRs are used widely by California physicians, but many of their
systems are not designed to meet new federal standards aimed at improving the quality
of health care. Seventeen percent of California physicians are likely to be eligible
for Medi-Cal incentive payments for meaningful use of EHRs. Many thanks to the physicians
who participated in this survey.
