September Ophthalmology research highlights
Date:9/1/2008

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--- Doctors and medical centers across the United States are debating the use of electronic health records (EHR).

EHR are particularly relevant to specialties that rely heavily on diagnostic images and technical data, such as ophthalmology. A recent study by the American Academy of Ophthalmology is the first to assess use of EHR by U.S. ophthalmologists (Eye M.D.s).

The study collected and analyzed the responses of 592 Academy member ophthalmologists who voluntarily completed a standardized survey online or in a telephone interview in March 2006; the full study group was 3,800 randomly selected members.
