Health Information Technology in Support of Patient-Centered Medical Homes Is Low among Non-metropolitan Family Medicine Practices

This rural health policy brief from the RUPRI Center for Rural Health Policy Analysis finds that the use of HIT applications that support patient-centered medical homes (PCMHs) is low among family medicine practices; non-metropolitan physician practices are less likely than metropolitan practices to be using HIT applications that support PCMHs, and that current use of electronic information is predominantly for administrative purposes, not patient care.
