Recognizing that the delivery and the efficiency of health care could be improved through stronger integration of an electronic health information
infrastructure, in 2009 Congress passed the Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health (HITECH) Act, launching an unprecedented
effort to spur the adoption and use of information technology (IT) throughout the health system.
Since the passage of the HITECH Act, the health information technology landscape has dramatically evolved. Hospitals and health care providers are
using health IT at unprecedented levels. In 2008, only 17 percent of physicians and nine percent of hospitals had at least a basic electronic health
record (EHR). As of 2015, 96 percent of hospitals and 78 percent of physician offices were using certified EHR technology. In short, a significant
majority of individuals in the United States now have a digital footprint of their health and care experience, generating new sources and uses of this
electronic health information every day.
