Dr. Lawrence Casalino

Using data from a survey of providers in the Primary Care Information Project, the authors tried to determine if provider comfort with computers and attitudes about electronic health records (EHRs) affected their future use of EHRs. They found that meaningful use of the EHR was not affected by the providers’ prior attitudes about EHRs.
