I love this diagram. Now think about how meaningful use and EHR certification has skewed this diagram.


I expect this divide to grow even wider. The same could be said for rural vs urban healthcare as well. Rural EHR adoption is likely to fall behind.


Nope. You better be ready for EHR downtime. No system is immune.
