It has been articulated possibly best by Farzad Mostashari who recently reminded the HIT Policy Committee of their present accomplishments. That being: four years ago 90 percent of hospital patient records, 80 percent of physician’s patient records and 93 percent of prescriptions were written on paper. In 2012, 44...
