FierceEMR – Americans still wary of digital health records (7/31/12)


Harris Interactive conducted a survey for Xerox of over 2,100 U.S. adults. The survey found that 40% of respondents believe EHRs can boost care quality, 26% want their health records to be digital, and 85% had “‘concerns’ about digital medical records.” The numbers are down since last year, when Xerox conducted a similar survey where 42% of respondents believed EHRs improved care quality.
