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.

2016 Report to Congress on Health IT Progress: Examining the HITECH Era and the Future of Health IT

The 2016 Report to Congress on Health Information Technology Progress is prepared by the Office of the National Coordinator for Health IT to describe the specific actions that have been taken by the federal government and private entities to facilitate the adoption of a nationwide system for the electronic use and exchange of health information. Since the passage of the HITECH Act, the health IT  landscape has dramatically evolved.  Hospitals and health care providers are using health IT at unprecedented levels. This rapid digitization of the health system was the result of many factors, including extensive collaboration among clinicians, hospitals, technologists, patient and consumer advocates, and experts from all over the country. This progress, where an extraordinary amount of electronic health information and infrastructure now exist that the country lacked merely a decade ago, has set the stage for a transition in focus to the seamless and secure flow of this health information – also known as interoperability – to improve the health and care of individuals and communities. HHS will continue to work with public and private sector partners in the months and years to come to ensure that people, organizations, and communities can easily access actionable electronic health information when and where it matters most.

Evaluation of the State HIE Cooperative Agreement Program

This is the final evaluation report of the State Health Information Exchange Cooperative Agreement Program. The State HIE program was created to enable rapid development of health information exchange across the nation. The evaluation found that there is no one-size-fits-all solution with exchange. Development and use of health information exchange is predicated on the state and local environments. There is now more health information exchange capacity in the nation, as well as a path forward toward greater data use for both exchange and interoperability. View Evaluation Report.

Regional Extension Centers (REC) Priority Primary Care Providers Meaningful Use Milestone

As of January 2016, the REC program has exceeded its target to enroll and assist 100,000 priority primary care providers (PPCPs) to demonstrate meaningful use (MU) of certified EHR technology (CEHRT). RECs support providers' adoption of CEHRT and richer functionality of MU, including: clinical quality reporting, e-prescribing, and medication reconciliation to improve patient care and successfully demonstrate the MU stage 1 criteria. While some providers had an EHR installed before REC assistance commenced, almost all providers required system upgrades or requested a full EHR replacement to implement CEHRT to reach MU. As of as of January 2016, 95 percent of REC-enrolled PPCPs (136,726 providers) have an EHR installed and are routinely using the technology, and over 78 percent of all REC-enrolled PPCPs (112,804 providers) had demonstrated MU of CEHRT.

State and National Trends of Two-Factor Authentication for Non-Federal Acute Care Hospitals

As electronic health information becomes more widely available, proper security measures must be implemented to ensure the information is only accessible to those with the rights to access it. The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) requires covered entities to verify that a person seeking access to electronic protected health information (ePHI) has authorization. Two-factor authentication provides identification of EHR users by means of the combination of two different components. View Data Brief.

Medicaid Eligible Professionals' Progress to Meaningful Use

The ONC data update for the April 7, 2015 Federal Advisory Committee on Health IT examines Medicaid eligible professionals' (EP) progress towards meaningful use (MU). The update examines registration, AIU, and attestation rates for the Medicaid EHR Incentive Program. Overall, though more EPs registered with the Medicaid program than expected, Medicaid EPs' progress to MU is slower than Medicare EPs, and fewer than 1 in 10 EPs scheduled for stage 2 in 2014 were registered with the Medicaid program.

Hospital Reporting on Meaningful Use Public Health Measures in 2014

To promote electronic information exchange between hospitals and public health agencies, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services' (CMS) Electronic Health Record (EHR) Incentive Program includes objectives to promote electronic reporting of data regarding immunizations, emergency department visits ("syndromic surveillance"), and infectious disease laboratory results. In this brief, we describe how hospitals reported on these three public health measures during fiscal year 2014, and demonstrate the differences in measure reporting between stages 1 and 2.
