Late last year, the Office of the National Coordinator for Health IT announced that it would restructure its funding plans and time frames for regional extension centers.
ONC established the REC program to provide outreach and support services to health care providers seeking to qualify for federal incentive payments for the meaningful use of health IT.
In an iHealthBeat Special Report by Kelly Wilkinson, experts discussed how RECs plan to take advantage of ONC's new funding structures and time frames. The Special Report includes comments from:
- Speranza Avram, executive director of the California Health Information Partnership and Services Organization;
- Mat Kendall, director of ONC's Office of Provider Adoption Support; and
- Christy Rosenberg, director of the Community Clinics Health Network (Wilkinson, iHealthBeat, 2/24).
The complete transcript of this Special Report is available as a PDF.
