HHS Awards $38 Million to Improve Health Information Sharing

The money is available via three health information technology grants from the Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology.

HHS' Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology (ONC) has announced 20 different awardees for three health IT grant programs, with the grants totaling more than $38 million. This is part of HHS’ efforts to create a learning health system that achieved better care, smarter spending and healthier people, according to its news release.

"We have made great strides in the adoption and use of health IT. As we move beyond adoption to a learning health system where information is available when and where it matters most, it is important to ensure greater care coordination at the community level, and these grants provide resources to meet this goal," said Dr. Karen DeSalvo, M.D., M.P.H., M.Sc., national coordinator for health IT.

The grants will help to improve the way providers are paid, help innovate in care delivery, and help share information with providers, consumers, and others.
