Basic EHRs in use by nearly half of Massachusetts doctors

The physician study (www.csc.com/physician_study_09) examines physicians' use of basic and advanced EHR capabilities.

Of those surveyed, 36 percent said they use all "basic" EHR capabilities outlined in the survey, including electronic medication and problem lists, and functionality to order prescriptions electronically. Five percent claimed adoption of all "advanced" EHR capabilities, including disease management and health maintenance functionality.

Close to three-fourths of physicians surveyed said they order prescriptions electronically for at least some of their patients, while almost two-thirds regularly transmit prescriptions electronically to pharmacies via fax or computer. The survey shows that these levels reflect efforts by payers to provide physicians with e-prescribing software.

The surveys were conducted in the summer of 2008. They include responses from 519 physicians, or roughly 3 percent of the physician population of Massachusetts, and 27 CIOs and hospital executives representing 43 facilities, or approximately 60 percent of the hospitals in the state.

Massachusetts has a heritage of medical innovation that includes development of EHR systems and institution of universal healthcare coverage. Most health plans that serve the state are regional and there is a history of collaboration between providers and payers. For example, the New England Healthcare Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) Network has been exchanging data between health plans and providers since 1998.
