Just to show that you don’t have to be Kaiser to survey the public on EMRs, mid-tier vendor Quadramed has done so too. The basic findings are that few consumers were aware that national quality ratings exist. And frankly I think that the few who are aware are wrong! But if they did exist they say they would use them (which is now what actually happens now BTW according to Harris data). Even fewer had heard of P4P, but in general they liked the idea once it was explained to them. And while roughly half had heard of EMRs, they like that concept too. Finally 42% said they’d experienced an insurance related error. I assume the remaining 52% have never filed a claim!
