Health IT effects varied by type of outcome but were mostly positive overall.
The Health IT literature is expanding rapidly.
Future health IT evaluation studies need more details on how context and implementation affect value.
This systematic review included 236 studies published from January 2010 to August 2013. The study also compiled studies from July 2007 to August 2013 and reported outcomes for 493 studies, highlighted in Figures 1 and 2. Details on the methods and detailed findings are reported elsewhere1.
ONC sponsored the study under contract, but the analysis was independently conducted by RAND Health and a technical expert panel.
