Electronic Capabilities for Patient Engagement among U.S. Non-Federal Acute Care Hospitals: 2012-2015

This ONC Data Brief describes trends in hospitals capability to engage patients with their health information electronically from 2012 to 2015. The percent of hospitals that enable patients to electronically view, download, and transmit their health information grew almost 7-fold between 2013 and 2015. However, Critical Access, medium, and small hospitals lag behind large hospitals in possessing electronic view, download, and transmit capabilities for their patients.

Non-federal Acute Care Hospital EHR Adoption and Use

The adoption and use of electronic health records is a key ONC priority. Non-federal acute care hospitals', the principal providers of short term and emergency inpatient care, adoption and use of EHRs is integral to achieve this priority. ONC annually tracks hospital performance for several key metrics, including EHR adoption, health information exchange and interoperability, and patient engagement. This dataset provides national and state rates for these metrics. The rates are calculated from results of the American Hospital Association Annual Survey/ Health IT Supplement. The data page includes data access in [.csv], [.json] and [.xml] formats, and full documentation for the data. Access Dataset.

Interoperability among U.S. Non-federal Acute Care Hospitals in 2015

Over 1 in 4 hospitals can electronically find, send, receive, and use key clinical information - an important metric for tracking interoperability. This brief presents the most recent estimates on the state of interoperable exchange activity among U.S. non-federal acute care hospitals, including whether hospitals have key patient information electronically available from sources outside their system; whether this information is subsequently used for clinical decisions; and barriers to the exchange and use of that information.
