Kaiser Survey on Health Records

May 3, 2007

According to a study released today at a Kaiser Healthcare Summit in DC, while most of the survey respondents stated that their provider uses electronic records, and that they are more efficient, the were slightly more trusting of papers records by 47 to 42%. 46% had visited a health information website, and were slightly more interested in these type of sites as opposed to insuror websites. 51% said they would prefer a doctor who uses an EMR all other qualifications being equal. 73% thought that the benefits of EMRs outweighed the risks.

Overall, these results are encouraging, but they still show a low level of familiarity with EMRs.
