The West Virginia Regional HIT Extension Center is recommending eight electronic health records vendors as supporting meaningful use criteria and willing to work with the REC to facilitate implementation of EHRs.

Federal stimulus money has funded 62 RECs across the nation to provide a range of consulting and technical services to aid providers in adopting EHRs. Many of the RECs have vetted and endorsed, or recommended, a set of EHR vendors. In essence, RECs are doing vendor due diligence for providers and giving them a list of finalists to consider.

In West Virginia, the selected vendors are Allscripts, athenahealth, eClinicalWorks, e-MDs, GE Healthcare, Greenway Medical, NextGen Healthcare and Sage. More information is available at
