Are you satisfied with your EHR system?

The adoption of electronic health records (EHRs) is on the rise, thanks in part to federal incentives for meaningful use of certified EHR technology. However, increased use does not necessarily mean that EHR systems are living up to users' expectations.

A recent FPM online reader poll asked, "Are you satisfied with the EHR system your practice uses?" Most respondents (44 percent) said they are not satisfied with their EHR system, while 35 percent said they are satisfied and 21 percent indicated that they do not use an EHR.

To view satisfaction ratings for individual EHR systems, based on a separate survey, read the recent FPM article "The 2011 EHR User Satisfaction Survey: Responses From 2,719 Family Physicians."

The online reader poll was conducted between July 12 and Nov. 14 and included 544 responses. Poll results are not scientific and reflect the opinions of only those users who chose to participate.

To take the latest reader poll, visit the FPM web site.
