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.

Individuals' Perceptions of the Privacy and Security of Medical Records and Health Information Exchange

A majority of individuals (74%) are confident their medical records are safe from unauthorized viewing, but have concerns (66%) when health information is electronically exchanged. These perceptions are unchanged since 2011. Ten percent of individuals reported withholding information from their health care provider due to privacy and security concerns regarding their medical record. This is down from 15% of individuals in 2014.

Gaps in Individuals' Information Exchange

Eight-three percent of individuals went to a health care provider at least once within the past year. Overall, 32 percent of individuals who went to a doctor in the past 12 months reported experiencing a gap in information exchange. Almost 1 in 10 individuals who had been to the doctor last year reported having to redo a test or procedure because their prior data was unavailable. About 1 in 5 individuals had to bring prior test results to an appointment.

Data Brief

Individuals' use of online medical records and technology for health needs [pdf]

Online access to medical records, such as through patient portals, enable patients and caregivers to access their health information. Mobile health apps and devices connected to a providers' electronic health record system using open application programming interfaces (APIs) will also allow individuals to collect, manage, and share their health information. Using the National Cancer Institute's 2017 Health Information Trends Survey, we report on access and use of online medical records and the use of technology such as smartphones, tablets, and electronic monitoring devices (e.g. Fitbits, blood pressure monitors) for health related needs.

Dataset

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.
