Preventing readmission after hospital discharge remains a top national priority. This study showed that ambulatory electronic health record (EHR) adoption is associated with decreased admissions for certain conditions. However, the investigators did not find such a correlation with regard to readmissions. They suggest that improving interoperability between hospital and clinic EHRs is an important next step.
