Hospitals Use of Electronic Health Records Data, 2015-2017 [pdf]

With widespread adoption of EHRs, policy is now shifting towards the use of EHR data. EHR data can improve patient care by giving providers access to evidence based tools that assist with decision making and facilitating clinical practice by automating and streamlining the provider workflow. This brief uses data from the American Hospital Association Information Technology Survey to describe trends in the use of EHR data among non-federal acute care hospitals from 2015 to 2017.

2015 Edition Market Readiness for Hospitals and Clinicians

These graphics visualize the proportion of developers, by market share, that have certified 2015 edition health IT modules. Market share approximations are determined through an analysis of the certified health IT products reported by participants in the Medicare EHR Incentive Program from 2011 to 2016. Approximations use the most recently reported data for each unique clinician and hospital participant.

Electronic Capabilities for Patient Engagement among U.S. Non-Federal Acute Care Hospitals: 2013-2017 [pdf]

The Medicare and Medicaid Electronic Health Record (EHR) Incentive Programs incentivized hospitals to provide patients access to their health information through the use of certified EHR technology. Since 2014, eligible hospitals were required to provide patients with the capability to view, download, and transmit (VDT) their health information. VDT capability provides patients with electronic access to their personal health information. Other electronic patient engagement capabilities allow hospitals and their patients to interact online. This data brief explores the trends and variation in hospitals' adoption of VDT and other electronic patient engagement capabilities. View Data Brief.

Electronic Prescribing of Controlled Substances among Medicare Part D Prescribers 2015-2016 [pdf]

The use of EPCS technology can help health care providers integrate prescription information into electronic health records (EHRs) more directly, while improving patient safety and reducing diversion and fraud. In October 2018, Congress passed the Substance Use-Disorder Prevention that Promotes Opioid Recovery and Treatment (SUPPORT) for Patients and Communities Act to address the opioids crisis. The SUPPORT for Patients and Communities Act includes a provision requiring prescriptions for controlled substances covered by Medicare Part D to be transmitted electronically starting in 2021. This data brief explores the use of EPCS among Medicare Part D providers on the Surescripts Network from 2015 to 2016. View Data Brief.

Methods Used to Enable Interoperability among U.S. Non-Federal Acute Care Hospitals in 2017 [pdf]

Understanding the methods used by health care organizations to enable exchange and their capacity to do so is important. It provides context for how and where policy development and investments can streamline the complexity of exchange and address barriers to interoperability. This data brief uses nationally representative 2017 American Hospital Association IT Supplement survey data to describe the methods hospitals use to exchange summary of care records. We also present hospitals' participation rates in health information networks and variation in the methods used to exchange information by hospital type. View Data Brief.

Variation in Interoperability among U.S. Non-federal Acute Care Hospitals in 2017 [pdf]

Monitoring the state of interoperability is important to assess current policies and identify ways to advance the electronic exchange of health information. In this data brief, we describe the progress hospitals made in four interoperability domains - sending, receiving, finding, and integrating electronic health information. The data brief shows that engagement in interoperability varies among small, rural, and critical access hospitals (CAHs). View Data Brief.
