ONC/American Hospital Association (AHA), AHA Annual Survey Information Technology Supplement.
 *'Transmit Health Information Online' was added to AHA survey in 2013. Data was not collected for 2012. 'View, Download, Transmit' functionality, therefore, reflects only data collected in 2013. See Quick Stat #24: U.S. Hospital Adoption of Patient Engagement Functionalities for a break-out of hospital adoption of 'view', 'download', and 'transmit' functionalities.
 Data reflects the responses of 2,655 non-federal acute care hospitals.
 Data calculated from answers to survey question: "Does your hospital currently have a computerized system which allows for?" [multiple functionalities listed].
