EHR Systems Considered Priority by Medical Students

Posted by EHR Analyst on Tue, Nov 24, 2009 @ 12:00 AM

In a survey conducted by California based Epocrates Inc, the results of which were published by AAFP, 9 out of 10 medical students declare that an electronic health record, or EHR, system will be a key part of their future medical practices. That finding puts students squarely in the same camp as many family physicians, who already have a fully implemented EHR system in their practice or are in the process of implementing one.

The survey based on the feedback from 1,005 medical students who use the company's mobile software concluded that medical students view EHRs as a priority in their future work lives. In fact, 90 percent said it is "important" or "very important" to have an EHR system wherever they decide to practice.
