A new report from ONC highlights nationally representative metrics on electronic health record (EHR) adoption and health information exchange among skilled nursing facilities (SNFs). A majority (64%) of SNFs reported having an EHR in 2016. Moreover, three in ten SNFs exchanged (electronically sent or received) key clinical health information and nearly two-thirds of SNFs had information electronically available from outside sources at the point of care.
