Trendwatch Issue Brief 4: Advanced Use of Health Information Technology to Support New Models of Care

This brief is the fourth in a series of issue briefs highlighting data from the 2016 AHA Annual Survey Information Technology Supplement for community hospitals collected November 2016 – April 2017. This fourth brief compares the use of health IT by hospitals and health systems that are participating in new models of care with those that are not. Hospitals and health systems are considered to be participating in new models of care if they reported having at least one of the following: an accountable care organization, a medical home program, or participation in a bundled payment program. In the 2016/2017 survey, 41 percent of responding hospitals reported that they participated in new models of care, up from 19 percent of respondents in 2012.
