Rural Assistance Center Health Information Technology Toolkit
About the HIT Toolkit
Health information technology (HIT) systems can be difficult to implement. With support from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services' Rural HIT Taskforce, this toolkit provides federal resources to help guide rural health facilities and providers through the phases of choosing, implementing and operating HIT systems. Using the toolkit, rural communities can:
- Address challenges of finding capital funding
- Help community colleges enhance training programs
- Stay informed about legislation affecting EHRs
- Leverage multiple federal resources for project development
This is a pilot program developed by the Rural Assistance Center (RAC) and the National Rural Health Resource Center, with funding provided by the Office of Rural Health Policy (ORHP).
