Electronic Health Records (EHRs) constitute evidence of onlinehealth information management. Critical healthcare information technology (HIT) infrastructure facilitates health information exchange of ‘modern’ health systems. The growth andimplementation of EHRs are progressing in many countrieswhile the adoption rate is lagging and lacking momentumamidst privacy and security concerns.This paper uses an interrupted time series (ITS) analysis of OECDdata related to EHRs from many countries to make predictionsabout EHR adoption. The ITS model can be used to explore theimpact of various HIT on adoption. Assumptions about the impact of Information Accountability are entered into the model togenerate projections if information accountability technologiesare developed. In this way, the OECD data and ITS analysiscan be used to perform simulations for improving EHR adoption.
