In this report we use the data collected for ONCHIT to focus on EHR adoption in the inpatient setting. We report on several important policy issues. These include the rate of adoption of EHRs among U.S. hospitals generally and among safety-net hospitals, changes in both state and federal policy, and the potential of EHRs to change the quality measurement enterprise.
