Electronic health record (EHR) adoption was largely spurred by incentives provided through the HITECH Act of 2009, but long-term care facilities are not eligible for these payments. This systematic review identified common barriers to EHR adoption at long-term care facilities, most notably the high upfront costs and various implementation hurdles. Potential advantages to EHRs in this setting include information sharing and error reduction.
