After the first session of the American College of Medical Informatics 2004 retreat, during which the history of electronic health records was reviewed, the second session served as a forum for discussion about the state of the art of EHR adoption.

Initial recommendations for addressing these issues include providing communication and education to both providers and consumers and alignment of incentives for clinicians.
