Electronic Health Records (EHRs) constitute evidence of online health information management. Critical healthcare information technology (HIT) infrastructure facilitates health information exchange of ‘modern’ health systems. The growth and implementation of EHRs are progressing in many countries while the adoption rate is lagging and lacking momentum amidst privacy and security concerns.

This paper uses an interrupted time series (ITS) analysis of OECD data related to EHRs from many countries to make predictions about EHR adoption. The ITS model can be used to explore the impact of various HIT on adoption. Assumptions about the impact of Information Accountability are entered into the model to generate projections if information accountability technologies are developed. In this way, the OECD data and ITS analysis can be used to perform simulations for improving EHR adoption.
