Overview:

These visualizations depict the percent of eligible and critical access hospitals that have demonstrated meaningful use of certified health IT through the Medicare Electronic Health Record (EHR) Incentive Program through 2015. Some hospitals have received payments (for either meaningful use, or adopt, implement, or upgrade (AIU) of health IT) through both the Medicare and Medicaid Incentive Programs. These visualizations encompass only those hospitals that have demonstrated meaningful use in at least one program year through the Medicare Program.

These visualizations use the EHR Products Used for Meaningful Use Attestation public use file (PUF) and the CMS Provider of Services (POS) file to generate these calculations and identify the geographic locations of participating hospitals. The PUF provides the counts of all hospitals that demonstrated meaningful use, and the POS provides the denominator of hospitals for each state. These denominators include only active, eligible hospitals.

This app allows you to plot the geographic locations of these hospitals. Plots correspond only to those hospitals that have demonstrated meaningful use.

See Hospital Participation in CMS EHR Incentive Programs quick stat for more information on overall hospital participation in both the Medicare and Medicaid Programs.

[2] ONC uses the CMS Provider of Services (POS) file to calculate the number of hospitals in each state. These hospital calculations only include active (not closed, etc.) short-term general and critical access hospitals, inclusive of only those short-term care hospitals eligible for payments through the Medicare EHR Incentive Program.

Notes:

[1] Hospitals eligible for the Medicare EHR Incentive Program include only short-term care and critical access hospitals. These exclude children's hospitals. In depth eligibility criteria for the EHR Incentive Program can be found at the official CMS site, <cms.gov>.

[2] Small rural hospitals are facilities in non-metropolitan areas with fewer than 100 certified beds. Critical Access hospitals are facilities in non-metropolitan areas with fewer than 25 certified beds and more than 35 miles from another Critical Access or general hospital.
