EHR tech help, quality gains linked: study

“High-intensity technical assistance might be key to realizing quality gains from the use of electronic health-record systems among small-practice doctors caring for patients in underserved areas, a new study suggests.
The study, published in Health Affairs and undertaken by researchers from Weill Cornell Medical College and the Primary Care Information Project of the New York City Health Department, found that EHR implementation alone was not enough to improve the quality of care provided by the primary-care physicians studied, who worked in small practices in underserved neighborhoods in New York.”
