Health Information Technology
The Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health (HITECH) Act, enacted as part of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 promotes the adoption and meaningful use of health information technology. The Center for Rural Health encourages these efforts in North Dakota by:
- Supporting rural healthcare facilities' efforts to implement electronic health records and reach Meaningful Use.
- Participating in North Dakota’s state-wide efforts to establish a health information exchange.
- Facilitating the efforts of the Regional Extension Assistance Center for HIT (REACH) in advancing HIT for North Dakota.
- Working with statewide entities to ensure the successful use of HIT to improve quality care for North Dakotans.
