Electronic Health Records have been in limited use since the 1960s, but their adoption received a major boost when they became more of a focus for the US government. In 2004, President Bush put forth the goal of having every American covered by an EHR within 10 years. In 2009, President Obama added the key element of funding under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act. The EHR Meaningful Use Incentive programs funded under the ARA were further bolstered by programs in the 2010 health care reform legislation which promoted Accountable Care Organizations.

After the results of the November elections and the Supreme Court’s ruling upholding the individual mandate, the future for health care reform would look more sure. However, recently some Republican members of congress have turned their attention to EHR programs, questioning whether they are an effective use of funding.

The report, “Electronic Health Records - Charting the Future of Health Care”, was designed to provide insights and analysis on a topic that is being felt from government agencies to treating physicians, while also impacting the pharmaceutical industry. CBR Pharma Insights not only READ MORE >
