to see your tax dollars at work in health information technology.
HHS' Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology at HHS, working in cooperation with the CMS, has posted a set of data-rich interactive maps to track the country's progress on health IT adoption, as spurred by programs created by the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009.
The main page of the dashboard now includes links to U.S. maps showing provider payment levels under the Medicare and Medicaid electronic health-record system incentive payment programs. On the incentive payment map
, visitors can click on a state and see a map speckled by dots of payment recipients. Each dot produces a pop-up box giving basic information about that recipient. The maps can be layered to show recipients of only Medicare or Medicaid EHR incentive payments, or both.
In addition to EHR incentive recipients, map layers are posted for locations of health IT regional extension centers, state health information exchanges, Beacon Communities, Strategic Health IT Advanced Research Projects, community colleges and universities participating in the ONC Health IT Workforce Program and the workforce curriculum development centers, as well as dozens of other regional health information organizations.
