In study published in Health Affairs (per a Medical Economics blurb), 78% of office based docs have some type of EMR/EHR. Hooray! That being said, only 14% of doctors can share this info with other doctors outside their office. Whoops. It turns out the data exchange part was all but forgotten. Not worry. Each doctor can spend thousands upon thousands to maybe upgrade their EMR so it communicates with the hospital. Maybe.
