TECH: Big practices using IT, less so in smaller ones

Another incomplete but useful study from HSC on physician technology use. Essentially the investments made by big groups in EMRs are showing up in the data, with nearly half those in groups of 50 and above using ePrescribing—perhaps the key indicator of whether a doc is using a computer for a basic clinical function.

But for those in the 1–9 sized group the number went from 8% in 2001 to 13% in 2005. A big increase in percentage terms, but not exactly setting the world alight.
