[1] This total excludes hospitals that are now closed, and it merges data for those hospitals that have changed its status, i.e. changed status from general to Critical Access hospital, and have subsequently reported under more than one unique identifier.

[2] In 2015, Computer Programs and Systems Inc (CPSI) acquired Healthland Inc, a developer and vendor of certified health IT, and rebranded its EHR solution as Evident. Totals for Evident reflect all hospitals that report Evident, CPSI, and/or Healthland certified health IT.

[3] In 2015, QuadraMed Corporation, a subsidiary of Harris Computer Systems, acquired NextGen Healthcare's inpatient health IT division. Totals for QuadraMed, above, reflect reports of NextGen Healthcare's inpatient certified health IT.

[4] In 2015, athenahealth acquired Razorinsights. Totals for athenahealth include reports of Razorinsights products.

[5] Self-developed technology is health IT developed by a health care organization or system to be used only by providers within that organization or system. Self-developed technology is not marketed and sold to providers outside the organization or system.

[6] Prior versions of this ONC Quick Stat (get graphic) reported, in addition to certified health IT reported to the Medicare EHR Incentive Program, certified health IT reported as adopt, implement, or use (AIU) attestations through state Medicaid EHR Incentive Programs and the ONC Health IT Regional Extension Centers Program. The Medicaid and Regional Extension Centers data are from 2011 and do not reflect the most current data for these providers. Updates will be made to the data presented in this Quick Stat when more recent data for the state Medicaid Incentive Programs are available.
