Georgia to help doctors get e-medical records

Chattanooga Times Free Press, January 5, 2010

The state of Georgia is launching a program that would jump-start Medicaid physicians' use of paperless health records. This month, the Georgia Office of Health Information Technology and Transparency will begin to develop a secure electronic health information exchange for the 10,000 physicians in the state who treat Medicaid patients, according to a release. Medicaid providers will have access to a statewide network of computerized health records that officials say will result in better care for patients and streamlined management of patient medical histories, reports the Chattanooga Times Free Press.
