HHS awards grants to support states' health data sharing

The Department of Health and Human Services is expanding its efforts to accelerate healthcare information sharing, and helping to fund a dozen state's data-sharing projects.

The $29.6 million grant will support programs in 12 states that plan to adopt the necessary tools, technology and services to provide and share health information, according to the agency. The funding will help address workflow challenges and technical issues to improve the meaningful use of clinical data from outside sources.

The funding is part of a two-year cooperative agreement program, and the grants come from program funding established by the 2009 American Recovery and Revitalization Act’s Health Information Technology and Clinical Health Act. All told, nearly $38 million has gone out to 20 awardees for three health information technology grant programs.
