"The Most-Shared Health Affairs Articles of 2018" includes a paper, "Electronic Health Records Associated With Lower Hospital Mortality After Systems Have Time To Mature," co-authored by Sunny C. Lin, Ashish K. Jha and Julia Adler-Milstein, in research funded by The John A. Hartford Foundation.

The top ten articles are ones that were the subject of "the most chatter, discussion, and debate this past year. These articles were shared on Twitter and Facebook and promoted to a broader consumer audience in the news media."

The electronic health record (EHR) study compared data from 3,249 hospitals across the country, measuring quality by looking at 30-day mortality rates for 15 common conditions for patients who were 65 years and older, and examining how the adoption of EHRs affected the quality of hospital care between 2008 and 2013.
