Over the last ten years, provider adoption of Electronic Health Records (EHRs) has grown significantly. Healthcare providers are expected to document encounters with patients to ensure a record of crucial information. However, just a decade ago around 90% of physicians still updated their patient records by hand. By the end of 2014, the tide had changed, and 83% of physicians reported they had adopted EHR systems. The combination of government incentives, advances in technology and improved outcomes and operations has fueled this growth.
