I think I read in a report that 40% of physicians were approaching retirement. If this group is in a solo practice (or small group), the thinking is that they will not be around long enough for the ROI. They just don't want to take on the extra work. (57% (2012) + 40% = 97%)

Therefore, unless there is a shift to group practices only, that have enough resources to support an EMR, it may take a long time to reach even 80% adoption.
