Legislature Authorizes Funding for Electronic Health Record Practice Management System

Tuesday, December 16, 2014

By unanimous vote, the Legislature amended the Capital Program and appropriated revenue from Health Department and Mental Health Department budgets for a required electronic health record practice system, to be used by the two departments.  As a result of response Requests for Proposals issued by each department, the departments agreed to select a common vendor to meet both departments’ documentation and practice management needs.  The Capital Program is amended to reflect the centralized system, and $192,500 is allocated from existing Mental Health Department and nearly $142,000 from existing Health Department revenue.
