The Medicare & Medicaid Services Electronic Health Record (EHR) Incentive Programs provide incentives to eligible ambulatory and inpatient providers to adopt electronic health records. These data provide meaningful use attestations from the Medicare EHR Incentive Program, linked to the ONC Certified Health IT Product List (CHPL). The data show which certified products were used for meaningful use attestations over the life of the program, thus far.
You can access the data in multiple formats below. If you have any questions or concerns about this documentation, please contact ONC.Request@hhs.gov. See the CMS site <cms.gov> for more information on the Incentive Programs and its data.
(1) The complete dataset exceeds 1 million rows of data, so, if loaded in Excel software, any data beyond a million rows will be omitted by Excel software. A statistical or other software that can load a file of this size is recommended to analyze this dataset. The data, however, are also provided separately for program years of the EHR Incentive Program (2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, and 2015).
(2) The current dataset has no values for over 48,000 rows of data for the 'Attestation Month' and 'Attestation Year' data fields and over 39,000 rows of data for the 'Payment Year' data field. Vendor, product, and other provider level information for these rows of data are not affected. The issue is known and we are working to correct it for future updates to the data.
This is an ongoing project managed by the Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology, an agency of the Department of Health and Human Services.
