Documentation

Overview:

With this dashboard you may view twenty different measures of non-federal acute care hospitals' adoption of health IT, including electronic health records (EHR) adoption, health information exchange (HIE), and patient engagement.

This dashboard defaults to a visualization of the percentage of all hospitals that have a certified EHR. With this tool you can select a different EHR adoption measure from the drop-down list, or choose to view measures in one of the other health IT adoption areas (HIE, interoperability and patient engagement) from the Measure Area list. Each time you choose a measure from the drop-down list, select another measure area to view, change the percentage range of the map, or display labels, a new graphic will appear that matches your selections.
