Though the proportion of Critical Access Hospitals (CAHs) using at least a basic electronic health record (EHR) is comparable to non‐CAHs, CAHs are less likely to have advanced EHR functions than non‐CAHs. Consequently, the objectives of this project are to:
- Assess the relationship between advanced EHR use and quality measure reporting and performance in CAHs;
- Evaluate how CAHs may differ from non‐CAHs in their EHR capabilities for information exchange, especially in the context of the COVID‐19 pandemic; and
- Provide an overview of how CAHs use EHRs for quality reporting, as informed by key stakeholders.
