Many scholars have argued that hospitals should introduce IT systems to improve quality of care. This study looked at the relationship among IT use, quality of care in local areas, and EHR adoption. Preliminary results show that 1) there was a significant difference in IT use between hospitals adopting and not adopting EHR system, 2) a positive but not statistically significant relationship was observed between the local area's quality of care and hospitals' EHR adoption.
