Electronic Health Record (EHR) Adoption

ONC tracks U.S. EHR adoption for non-federal acute care hospitals and office-based physicians. These two groups comprise a majority of those providers eligible for the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid EHR Incentive Program, and are the primary source of health care for many Americans.
