Check out the enhanced ONC Health IT Dashboard

Want to better understanding health IT and the transformative changes that electronic health records (EHR) are having in our nation's health care system? The newly enhanced Health IT Dashboard presents key information and data to enable collaborative monitoring of the impact of federal policies, programs, and research activities related to health IT.

The Health IT Adoption & Use Dashboard, maintained by the Office of the National Coordinator for Health IT (ONC),  presents state summary estimates for the rate of electronic health record (EHR) adoption among office-based physicians and hospitals.  For example, with the Dashboard, you can:

  • Discover state rates of hospital and office based provider adoption of EHRs according to overall, small, and rural hospital groups with the EHR Adoption Dashboard
  • Explore state and county level data on health information exchange such as pharmacy e-prescribing capacity, and provider e-prescribing activity (through EHRs or stand alone systems) with the E-Prescribing Dashboard
  • Download and analyze the data for your own purposes

In addition, check out some of the links to some of the many other 'Open Data' Health IT web sites that we have posted on Open Health News.
