Health Information Technology and Exchange

The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 provides approximately $19 billion in funding to help hospitals and physicians adopt health information technology. The Kansas Hospital Associiation and the Kansas Hospital Education and Research Foundation have compiled and developed resources to support the hospital community on its journey to Meaningful Use. KHA Principles for the Adoption of HIT were developed on March 25, 2009.
