Mark in the Sand for EMRs  

From 2009:

On the basis of responses from 63.1% of hospitals surveyed, only 1.5% of U.S. hospitals have a comprehensive electronic-records system (i.e., present in all clinical units), and an additional 7.6% have a basic system (i.e., present in at least one clinical unit).

Why the opportunities for Clinical Systems Analysts, Project Managers and Vendors remain strong. The public should eagerly be looking forward to an updated study soon since Meaningful Use has been imperative.
