Group seeks to unify Florida medical records

Miami Herald, October 19, 2009

A nonprofit coalition is seeking the help of 1,800 South Florida doctors to get $10 million in federal stimulus funds to help set up a regional system of electronic health records. The coalition reports it has received preliminary approval to apply for the money to establish a Regional Extension Center to help facilitate the use of electronic records in Broward, Miami-Dade, and Monroe counties. As part of the application, the coalition must obtain letters of support from 1,800 South Florida doctors indicating interest of getting training, education, and technical assistance in using electronic health records from the REC.
