More Than 100k Primary Care Providers Adopting EHRs


Nationwide, more than one-third of total primary care physicians (PCPs) are working with their regional extension centers (REC) to adopt electronic health records (EHRs), according to the U.S. Department of Health & Senior Services.

Half of these providers are in small group practices or consortia of small group practices. The other half is made up of community health centers (18%), public hospitals (11%); the remaining 21% are in various underserved settings.
