A forthcoming federal survey seeks to better understand patient perceptions of the care they receive through the use of electronic health records, particularly as practices begin to use EHRs.

The Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology will survey 840 patients at primary care practices and 42 practice staff members, and conduct a 20-patient focus group.

ONC is concerned of "an evidence gap about patients' preferences and perceptions of delivery of care services by providers who have adopted EHR systems in their practices," according to a notice published May 14 in the Federal Register. More information is available at federalregister.gov.
