Doctors see benefits of health IT, worry about privacy

A survey of 1,000 doctors in Massachusetts found 86% think electronic health information exchange would improve care quality, 76% believe it would save time and 70% say it would help lower costs. However, 71% were somewhat or very concerned about privacy breaches. A separate study also found 63% of doctors said they would be less willing to record confidential patient information in an electronic health record than in a paper record.
