Although provider’s electronic health record (EHR) adoption jumped from 42 percent in 2009 to 83 percent in 2014 as a result of the Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health (HITECH) Act of 2009, the broader impact of this transition remained questionable on patient outcomes. While EHRs are expected to improve the quality and accessibility of healthcare, increase patient engagement, and lower care costs, issues of cost, usability, interoperability, and regulatory compliance severely limited the anticipated growth, according to a new infographic by Vigyanix.
