Virginia doctors get tech support

The ominous looking mole on your back, your allergies, and your three week bout with mono back in college are all going digital.

Herndon-based Center for Innovative Technology will use $24 million in federal stimulus funds to help create a health information technology system. The company will team up with the Virginia Health Quality Center and use $12.4 million over two years to create electronic health records.

The remaining funds will be spent on the second phase of the project, improving the exchange of health records, and will be headed up by the governor’s Health Information Technology Advisory Commission.

From the Washington Business Journal article:

“In today’s global society, it is absolutely critical that we adopt practices that enable health information to be transmitted quickly and accessibly across the commonwealth and state lines,” said Gov. Bob McDonnell in a statement. “The federal funding awarded to Virginia will allow us to develop an information technology system that will safeguard our ability to track health records and provide our physicians with the technological tools they need to provide the highest quality service possible.”
