Infographic: Health IT Growth in the U.S.

August 27, 2013

Driven by major federal investments in health IT the past several years, hospitals, physicians and other providers have made significant strides in the adoption of EHRs and other health IT, according to a recent Robert Wood Johnson Foundation’s annual report, “Health Information Technology in the United States: Better Information Systems for Better Care, 2013,” co-authored by Mathematica Policy Research and the Harvard School of Public Health.

While there have been significant advancements, there are still many challenges facing health care providers as they work to meet Meaningful Use criteria. We’ve put together a nifty infographic that highlights the advances in both Meaningful Use attestation and HIE progress (or lack thereof). Click the image below to get the full infographic (pdf).

If you want to learn more about HIEs, we also offer a complimentary white paper that describes the various HIE architecture types (private, public, hybrid), the data and communication standards employed by HIEs, the sustainability issues facing HIEs, and a glossary of common terms. Click here to access the white paper.
