  1. Re: this comment–
    77 percent of EHR-using ophthalmologists say their practice is owned by physicians and only 6 percent by hospitals, which raises an interesting question – why the heck are so many of them using Epic instead of a specialty-specific EHR/PM? That seems suspicious.

    I think there typically a sort of shotgun marriage between the hospital/ health system and its PHO physician-owned practices. The doc’s like their clinic space, OR time and referral base–and would rather not run their own EMR–and the hospital wants to bind them closer to the hospital. The doctors can have any EMR they want, so long as it is Epic. They hold their nose, and jump in.

    Keep up the good work,
