ONC Releases Updated Meaningful Use Attestation Numbers

Meaningful Use Attestation Numbers Through July 31, 2013

The Office of the National Coordinator for Health IT along with the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services have compiled a list of Electronic Health Record products used for the attestation of Meaningful Use under the CMS Medicare and Medicaid EHR Incentive Program. The file containing this data is in a csv format and is updated monthly. In addition, a data dictionary is provided that describes the variables available in the dataset.

The dataset provides a comprehensive list of all certified products used by health care providers to attest to the “meaningful use” of EHR systems as well as the types of providers using them. This data set results from the merge of attestation data from the CMS EHR Incentive Program with certified EHR product information from ONC’s Certified Health IT Product List (CHPL). The data is current as of July 31, 2013.
