ONC: Nearly All Hospitals Use EHR data to Inform Clinical Practice

More than 9 in 10 hospitals used their electronic health record data to inform clinical practice in 2017, according to a new report by the US Department of Health and Human Services’ Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology. About eight in 10 hospitals used their EHR data to support quality improvement, monitor patients’ safety or measure organization performance; seven in 10 to identify high-risk patients, create individual provider profiles, measure unit performance or inform strategic planning; six in 10 to identify care gaps for patients or assess adherence to guidelines; and five in 10 to develop an approach to query for data.
