Data from a new RAND analysis showed EHR adoption has not generated the health care savings that were expected. Meanwhile, success has been mixed, at best, in boosting care and efficiency, even though such benefits are "unquestionably there for the taking," said researcher Dr. Arthur L. Kellermann.
