Survey

"Clinician Perspectives on Electronic Health Information Sharing for Transitions of Care"

The American College of Physicians (ACP), the Bipartisan Policy Center, and Doctors Helping Doctors Transform Health Care have released the results of a survey that reveals an overwhelming majority of clinicians believe that the electronic exchange of health information will have a positive impact on improving the quality of patient care, coordinating care, meeting the demands of new care models, and participating in third-party reporting and incentive programs.

Electronic Health Records (EHR)

Greater use of health information technology (HIT), including the use of electronic health records (EHRs), the implementation of systems to enable electronic prescribing by physicians, and health information exchanges have the potential for improving the quality of patient care, reducing medical errors, increasing efficiency, reducing administrative costs, and achieving substantial cost savings.
