  1. Is there a specific finished paper available regarding Jha’s research into the effectiveness of EMRs?

  2. Ashish Jha’s most notable paper on this topic, entitled “Use of Electronic Health Records in U.S. Hospitals,” was published in the NEJM this summer. You can find it here: http://content.nejm.org/cgi/content/full/360/16/1628. In addition, Dr. Jha opened the PHAT 2009 Conference by talking about this topic. The slides are available on the PHAT website (www.hsph.harvard.edu/phat/resources.html) and the video will be available in a couple days. I will post links to the video on this blog.
