Dashboard Features

Dashboards are interactive tools to visualize and analyze ONC's open data. Go to Dashboards.

Quick Stats are visualizations of key health IT data and statistics. Go to Quick Stats.

The Library is a catalog of ONC data briefs, evaluations, reports, and plans. Go to Library.

Data are open data sets derived from government-sponsored surveys and programs. Go to Data.

Data Spotlight

The spotlight, today, highlights the latest rates of hospital EHR adoption and interoperable exchange, certified health IT developer transparency, ONC's Interoperability Measurement Framework for MACRA.

Certified Health IT Developer Transparency

A more transparent health IT marketplace can promote competition, discourage information blocking, and make developers accountable to the needs of health care professionals and other health IT purchasers. This data, which is updated weekly, provides hyperlinks to each developer's mandatory disclosure statement and indicates the developer's response to the Transparency Attestation. View Dashboard.

Data Brief

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.

Evaluation Report

Final Report: Evalution of the Regional Extension Center Program [pdf]

This is the final report and evaluation of the Regional Extension Center (REC) program. The Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology (ONC) established the REC program to provide technical assistance to providers in areas such as EHR implementation and project management, training, vendor selection and financial consultation, workflow redesign, and privacy and security. The REC program prioritized providers working in small primary care practices, practices with large proportion of patients with Medicaid or without insurance, community health centers, rural health clinics, and Critical Access hospitals.
