The Washington, DC, government and two healthcare organizations are slated to receive $15.4 million in federal stimulus funds as part of a nationwide effort to improve patient records, promote record-sharing, and train people for careers in healthcare and health information technology. In a statement, the DC Department of Health Care Finance said the city's $5.1 million grant will help widen the exchange of patient information among healthcare providers in the city, Maryland, and Virginia.
