New York pitches health IT projects for economic recovery plan

Government Health IT, January 6, 2009

New York Gov. David Paterson has told Barack Obama's presidential transition team that the state has seven health information technology infrastructure projects that qualify as targets for the new administration's economic stimulus plan. In a recent letter to Obama, Paterson said New York is "ready to obligate in excess of $300 million within 180 days to implement a plan for health information exchange and $1 billion for provider electronic health records."
