Great lessons to be captured from looking across different geographies (survey by the Commonwealth Fund).
Just 27% of American doctors said they had EHRs with "multifunctional" capabilities.
That's a far lower percentage than in other countries such as the U.K. (68%), Australia (60%), and New Zealand (59%), but higher than in Canada (10%), France (6%), Germany (7%), Norway (2%) and Switzerland (7%). The Netherlands was roughly comparable to the U.S. at 33%.
What is frightening is the low level of (digital) exchange between GP's and specialists (yep, you're going to have to go read the original report now) as this has real impact in slowing down the time-to-treatment for patients in need.
