The State of New York has awarded $109 million in grants to 11 organizations to expand their use of health information technology to improve the coordination of care.

The grants are authorized under the Health Care Efficiency and Affordability Law of New York (HEAL NY) and the Federal State Health Reform Partnership. Enacted in 2004, HEAL NY has awarded about $440 million in state grants for health I.T. initiatives since 2006.

The latest grants focus on improving the delivery and coordination of mental health treatment, long-term care and home care through adoption of the medical home model. Two-year grants range from $3.8 million to $20 million.
