EHR Products Used for Meaningful Use Attestation

The Medicare Electronic Health Record (EHR) Incentive Program provides incentives to eligible clinicians and hospitals to adopt electronic health records. This dataset combines meaningful use attestations from the Medicare EHR Incentive Program and certified health IT product data from the ONC Certified Health IT Product List (CHPL) to identify the unique vendors, products, and product types of each certified health IT product used to attest to meaningful use. The dataset also includes important provider-specific data, related to the provider's participation and status in the program, unique provider identifiers, and other characteristics unique to each provider, like geography and provider type.

Hospital Public Health Reporting

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) EHR Incentive Program provides incentive payments for eligible hospitals to adopt and meaningfully use certified health IT. Among the requirements to receive an incentive payment, participating hospitals must report on public health measures. These measures include the electronic reporting of data regarding: immunizations, emergency department visits (syndromic surveillance), reportable infectious disease laboratory results, and electronic patient data to specialized registries, like cancert. As of 2015, stage 2 of the EHR Incentive Program requires hospitals to report on three public health measures, when applicable, and modified stage 2 of the program requires hospitals to report on two of the three measures. This dataset includes the percentage of hospitals who reported on these measures in program years, 2013, 2014 and 2015. Access Dataset.

Office-based Physician Health IT Adoption and Use

Since 2008, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's National Center for Health Statistics has fielded a mail survey of office-based physicians, the National Electronic Health Records Survey (NEHRS). ONC helps fund this supplement to track office-based physician adoption and the use of EHRs for health information exchange and patient engagement. Starting in 2010, the NEHRS's sample size was increased to allow for state-level estimates. The data set estimates each measure nationally and individually for each state and the District of Columbia beginning in 2010, unless otherwise noted. Access Dataset.

State Health IT Policy Levers Activities, Directory, and Points of Contact

The Health IT State Policy Levers Compendium was developed by the Office of National Coordinator for Health Information Technology (ONC) in coordination with states. It is intended to support state efforts to advance interoperability and can also be used in service of delivery system reform. The Compendium includes a directory of health IT policy levers and nearly 300 examples of how states have used them. The Compendium data is split into three distinct data files: the 'Policy Levers Directory', 'Example Activities Catalog', and the 'State Points of Contact'. The 'Policy Levers Directory' is a list of all 32 distinct policy levers contained within the Compendium. The directory data includes descriptions for each lever, as well as policy lever uses for health IT and interoperability. The 'Example Activities Catalog' includes the over 300 documented examples of these policy levers in use by states. The catalog data includes the states using the policy lever to promote health IT and advance interoperability, the state's documented activities, and official information source for these activities.

Electronic Prescribing Adoption and Use by State

Electronic prescribing (eRx) is a key component of the meaningful use of health IT to improve health care quality and lower costs. This dataset includes national and state eRx and health information exchange activity by community pharmacies and office-based health care providers active through the Surescripts Network. Surescripts is a health information network, and ONC procured electronic prescribing activity data conducted within its network from December 2008 through April 2014. The Surescripts network is used by the majority of all U.S. community pharmacies to rout prescriptions, excluding closed systems such as Kaiser Permanente.

Electronic Prescribing Adoption and Use by County

Electronic prescribing (eRx) is a key component of the meaningful use of health IT to improve health care quality and lower costs. This dataset includes county-level electronic prescribing (eRx) and health information exchange activity by community pharmacies and office-based health care providers active through the Surescripts Network. Surescripts is a health information network, and ONC procured electronic prescribing activity data conducted within its network from December 2008 through April 2014. The Surescripts network is used by the majority of all U.S. community pharmacies to rout prescriptions, excluding closed systems such as Kaiser Permanente. These include chain, franchise, and independently owned pharmacies. Data for annual percentages of new and renewal prescriptions routed through the Surescripts network exclude controlled substances.

ONC Community College Consortia to Educate Health IT Professionals Program Key Performance Indicators (KPIs)

The Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology (ONC) created the Community College Consortia to Educate Health IT Professionals in Health Care Program to increase the workforce of skilled health IT specialists that can help transition health care providers to electronic health records (EHRs). The Community College Consortia Program includes 82 member community colleges representing all 50 states. The member community colleges received funding to rapidly create health IT academic programs, or expand existing health IT training programs that can be completed in six months or less. This data provides key performance indicators by U.S. state. The data is provided beginning in September, 2010 and through September, 2013: the duration of the program. This data is an artifact of ONC's performance measurement for the Recovery and HITECH acts. Access Dataset.

Students Trained through ONC Workforce Programs

The Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology (ONC) created the Community College Consortia to Educate Health IT Professionals in Health Care Program and University-based Training Program to increase the workforce of skilled health IT specialists that can help transition health care providers to electronic health records (EHRs). The Community College Consortia Program includes 82 member community colleges representing all 50 states, and the University-based Training Program includes 9 member universities in 9 states. The member community colleges and universities received funding to rapidly create health IT academic programs, or expand existing health IT training programs that can be completed in six months or less. This data provides the number of students trained through both programs, segmented by rural and urban areas for each U.S. state. The data is through September, 2013: the duration of the program. This data is an artifact of ONC's performance measurement for the Recovery and HITECH Acts Access Dataset.

Effects of Meaningful Use Functionalities on Health Care Quality, Safety, and Efficiency

The Updated Systematic Review reviews the January 2010 to August 2013 health IT literature to examine the effects of health IT across three aspects of care: efficiency, quality, and safety. This report updates previous systematic reviews of the health IT literature, focusing specifically on identifying and summarizing the evidence related to the use of health IT as outlined in the Meaningful Use regulations. The review examined the literature to determine the article authors' findings related to the effects or associations of a meaningful use functionality on an aspect of care. Each article's findings was scored as positive (defined as: health IT improved key aspect of care but none worse off), mixed-positive (defined as: positive effects of health IT outweight negative effects), neutral (defined as: health IT not associated with change in outcome), or negative (defined as: negative effects of health IT on outcome). The full review data: article, related meaningful use functionality, aspect of care, and author sentiment are provided in this dataset. Access Dataset.
