The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) has made $1 million in funds available to support the exchange of electronic health information (EHI) across a greater spectrum of community providers. The Community Interoperability and Health Information Exchange Program will grant funding to 10 community organizations, state or local government agencies, or community groups that propose actionable approaches to extending their existing EHI to community partners, including those providers who aren’t eligible to participate in the Medicare and Medicaid Electronic Health Record Incentive Programs. The goal is to share health data across the entire care continuum.
Letters of intent should be received by May 15, but they are not required to apply. Applications are due June 15. Contact Beth Feldpush, DrPH, senior vice president of policy and advocacy, at
