EHR Products Used for Meaningful Use Attestation

The Medicare EHR Incentive Program provides financial incentives to eligible hospitals and ambulatory providers to adopt and meaningfully use certified electronic health record technology (CEHRT). EHR technology reported by participants are certified by ONC. This dataset provides the CEHRT reported by providers when they annually attest to meaningful use. The dataset includes attestations from 2011 through the current date of the data. Access Dataset.

Office-based Physician Health IT Adoption and Use

The adoption and use of electronic health records is a key ONC priority. Office-based physicians', the principal providers of practice-based outpatient care, adoption and use of EHRs is integral to achieve this priority. ONC annually tracks physician performance for several key metrics, including EHR adoption, interoperability and health information exchange, and patient engagement. This dataset provides national and state rates for these metrics. The rates are calculated from results of the National Electronic Health Records Survey (NEHRS). 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.
