This investigation found that although use of electronic health records (EHRs) in Medicare and Medicaid programs increased between 2011 and 2012, EHR systems lack the ability to track quality and safety to measure improvements. The report recommends developing a comprehensive strategy to compile clinical quality measurement data.
