Electronic Health Record Vendors Reported by Health Care Providers Participating in Federal EHR Incentive Programs

This public use file combines registration data compiled from two federal programs that are on-going since February 2009 – the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) Electronic Health Record (EHR) Incentive Programs and the ONC Health IT Regional Extension Centers (REC) Program – which collectively assist nearly 400,000 health care providers in their process to adopt EHRs and demonstrate the meaningful use of health IT.

This file enables tracking trends in the adoption of electronic health record (EHR) technologies by EHR vendor and by health care provider type (i.e., for professionals practicing in office-based settings and non-federal acute-care hospitals in the United States).
