Data source


Opportunities for improvement

  • Links to source data should be provided, rather than just static titles.
  • Example of source reference without a link:

SOURCE: Medicare EHR Incentive Program Data through December, 2014.

NOTE: Includes eligible hospitals reporting to the Medicare EHR Incentive Program for Fiscal Year 2014 (N=3,969). “Does not vaccinate” and “local jurisdiction cannot accept” were categories for exclusion options (see Definitions section for additional detail). For stage 1, immunization registry reporting is optional; it is required in stage 2.
