Calif. HIEs Getting HITECH Funds

Cal eConnect, the state-designated entity to manage and distribute $38.8 million in HITECH Act funds to health information exchange initiatives in California, is doling some of that money out.

The organization has approved funds totaling $3.46 million to six HIE projects. Grants are being awarded to Orange County Partnership Regional Health Information Organization ($795,761), Los Angeles Network for Enhanced Services ($996,070), Redwood Mednet ($476,900) and North Coast Health Information Network ($200,105).

Cal eConnect has authorized up to $1 million in grant funding for two projects pending further discussion with the organizations: the California Rural eHealth Information Network and the East Kern County Integrated Technology Association.
