Percentage of Office-based Physicians with Electronic Health Record System
2004 - 2014
As of 2014, a majority of office-based physicians have adopted electronic health records (EHRs). By the end of 2014, about 8 in 10 (83%) of office-based physicians had adopted any EHR and about half (51%) adopted a "Basic EHR". Since 2008, office-based physician adoption of any EHRs has nearly doubled, from 42% to 83%, while adoption of Basic EHRs has nearly tripled from 17% to 51%. Between 2013 and 2014, adoption of any EHR grew by 6% and Basic EHR adoption grew by 5%.

 Physicians adopted a Basic EHR if they reported their practice performed all of the following computerized functions: patient demographics, patient problem lists, electronic lists of medications taken by patients, clinician notes, orders for medications, viewing laboratory results, and viewing imaging results. The core capabilities of a Basic EHR were defined by DesRoches, et al. in the 2008 manuscript.
 Any EHR system is a medical or health record system that is either all or partially electronic, and excludes systems solely for billing.
 Data include non-federal, office-based physicians, and exclude radiologists, anesthesiologists, and pathologists.
