The Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality has awarded the American Health Information Management Association a $48,000 grant to host a two-day summit in April focused on rural health information technology.

The summit, in Washington, will convene public and private stakeholders to discuss quality-based incentive programs for health information technology adoption in small physician offices and hospitals in rural communities. The goal is to have the summit be a catalyst for development of research collaborations to address problems.

More information will be available at ahimafoundation.org.
