Description

AltaMed, a HRSA grantee under the Health Centers Program and Ryan White, was highlighted by HRSA for their efforts to integrate health and dental records in an electronic health records (EHR) system under their primary care centered home model of care.  AltaMed’s EHR technology meets meaningful use requirements, leading to eligibility for the EHR Incentive Program of HHS’s Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services. Around 100 health providers have qualified for the Meaningful Use Stage 1 incentives.

Ryan White programs can access technical assistance on data that focuses on implementation of Ryan White data systems and, in doing so, touches upon such crucial issues as meaningful use, EHR systems, data software like CAREWare, and more.
