Study: EHR use tied to success in population health management processes

Patient-centered medical homes and accountable care organizations that used EHRs in 2012 were 15% more likely to engage in population health management processes and 25% more likely to have effective communications with patients than non-users, according to ONC and CDC researchers. The findings in the American Journal of Managed Care also showed physicians who joined an ACO or adopted a patient-centered medical home model were more likely to participate in EHR-driven patient management activities.
