Notes:

[1] Totals above are only for health care professionals (primary care physicians, medical and surgical specialists, podiatrists, optometrists, dentists, and chiropractors) who practice in an ambulatory care setting and that reported the certified technology through participation in the Medicare EHR Incentive Program.

[2] 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 developed for commercial use, and, therefore, not marketed and sold to providers outside the organization or system.

[3] 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.
