Study: 99% of hospitals have partially or completely implemented EHRs

Researchers surveyed pharmacy directors at 1,315 hospitals in the US and found that 43.3% of hospitals completed implementation of EHR systems by 2016 and 55.7% partially implemented them, up from 33.6% that had fully or partially implemented EHRs in 2003. The findings, published in the American Journal of Health-System Pharmacy, showed that 100% of hospitals with 50 to 99 beds or at least 200 beds had implemented EHR systems, compared with 98.4% of those with less than 50 beds and those with 100 to 199 beds.
