Grant Is Earmarked for Electronic Health Records

JULY 01, 2004

The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services recently awarded a $100,000 grant to the American Academy of Family Physicians. The grant will support a pilot program to provide electronic-health-record software for the health care industry. The grant is part of the Bush administration's plan that a majority of Americans have electronic records within 10 years.

The funds will help the physician group to plan, implement, and evaluate a pilot whereby participating medical practices will adopt low-cost, standards-based electronic health records. The industry group will support and track the crossover to electronic records in these practices and learn what factors encourage or hamper the physicians' adoption of the technology.
