48.2 percent of respondents believe that password management issues are slowing down physician adoption of EMRs.

With 2011 upon us, the race is on for hospitals nationwide to deploy electronic medical records (EMRs), meet meaningful use criteria and earn a coveted part of the stimulus fund the government set aside for implementing health information technology. Taking the necessary steps to meet meaningful use criteria is a top priority for healthcare organizations. One of the biggest challenges in achieving meaningful use is physician adoption of EMRs. With 48 percent of healthcare executives believing password management issues slow physician adoption of EMR, it is clear that ensuring quick and easy access to patient data is a must.

Imprivata’s North American health care survey, highlighted in this slideshow, is focused on identifying technology trends relating to the meaningful use of EMRs, secure access to protected health information (PHI), and the impact of new technology on clinician workflow and improved patient outcomes. The online survey was conducted via SurveyMonkey, an online survey services provider, and polled nearly 500 health care IT decision makers and executives.
