Note: Any EMR/EHR is a medical or health record system that is either all or partially electronic (excluding systems solely for billing). The 2009 data are preliminary estimates, based only on the mail survey. Estimates of basic and fully functional systems prior to 2006 could not be computed because some items were not collected in the survey. Includes nonfederal, office-based physicians. Excludes radiologists, anesthesiologists, and pathologists.
