Transcript of NN/LM MCR Technology Coordinator
The HITECH Act authorizes a Health Information Technology Extension Program. The extension program consists of Health Information Technology Regional Extension Centers (RECs) and a national Health Information Technology Research Center (HITRC).
What is the HITRC?
The HITRC will gather information on effective practices and help the RECs work with one another and with relevant stakeholders to identify and share best practices in EHR adoption, meaningful use, and provider support.
What are the Regional Extension Centers (RECs)?
The RECs will support and serve health care providers to help them quickly become adept and meaningful users of electronic health records (EHRs). RECs are designed to make sure that primary care clinicians get the help they need to use EHRs.
Provide training and support services to assist doctors and other providers in adopting EHRs
Offer information and guidance to help with EHR implementation
Give technical assistance as needed
The goal of the program is to provide outreach and support services to at least 100,000 priority primary care providers within two years. Support appropriate personnel, preferably librarians, at the 5 community colleges to integrate evidence based medicine and consumer health information into the Health IT program curricula Activity 11: 2 of 5 librarians or faculty from the community colleges indicate, when asked, that as a result of RML support they shared information about resources for HIT Indicator: Background: Work with colleges that have received ARRA money to establish Health Information Technology programs. Support means: talking to, visiting,and training. Resources include NLM Resources and M+ Connect.
