Report Shows Significant Progress in Adoption of Health IT

A new Fund-supported report, National Progress Report on eHealth, tracks progress over the last three years in promoting the adoption and use of health information technology. Published by the eHealth Initiative, the report is based on input from 100 experts around the country as well as a survey of providers. Key findings include:
  • Significant advances have been made as a result of public and private sector initiatives. The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, which allocated $30 billion to promote health IT, has been a key driver of progress.
  • Many providers are concerned about the lack of coordination across government health and health information technology initiatives.
  • More education and outreach to consumers about health IT and health information exchange is needed.
  • Knowledge and transparency of privacy and security policies will be key to building consumer trust.
