The Medicare Electronic Health Record (EHR) Incentive Program provides incentives to eligible ambulatory and inpatient providers to adopt electronic health records. These data provide meaningful use attestations from the Medicare EHR Incentive Program, linked to the ONC Certified Health IT Product List (CHPL). The data show which certified products were used for meaningful use attestations over the life of the program, thus far.
You can access the data in multiple formats below. See the CMS site <cms.gov> for more information on the Incentive Programs and its data.
The complete dataset exceeds 1 million rows of data, so, if loaded in Excel software, any data beyond a million rows will be deprecated. A statistical or other software that can load a file of this size is recommended to analyze the complete dataset. The data, however, are also provided separately for program years of the EHR Incentive Program (2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015, and 2016).
Changes & Updates:
(1) The field names are now re-formated with underscores separating words. Please be aware of this change so you can alter your analytical code.
(2) As of November 2016, this dataset includes two new fields: ZIP and Hospital Type.
(3) The field, Specialty, now includes more specialty data. Data is from the NPPES database.
This is an ongoing project managed by the Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology, an agency of the Department of Health and Human Services. If you have any questions or concerns about this documentation, please contact ONC.Request@hhs.gov.
