In 2014, 64 percent of hospitals provided their patients with the capability to electronically view, download and transmit their health information. This is a significant increase from 2013, when only 10 percent of hospitals provided the capability, according to a new infographic by the Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology.

The infographic looks at the type of online access hospitals provide, the growth in physician practices providing online access to health information, meaningful use as a driver of this growth and the impact of online access to patient retention.

Transformational patient-centered models emerging post-ACA are designed to succeed with a core of engaged, activated patients, yet enlistment of individuals in chronic care management, telehealth and other health enhancement interventions continues to challenge the healthcare industry.

2015 Healthcare Benchmarks: Patient Engagement documents strategies, program components, successes and challenges of engaging patients and health plan members in self-care from 133 organizations responding to the 2015 Patient Engagement survey by the Healthcare Intelligence Network.
