CMS has awarded CT $695,000 in federal matching funds under the federal stimulus program for state planning activities to implement electronic health records in the Medicaid program. This funding will match state spending at the 90% rate – the state needs to contribute only $77,222 to access the full federal amount. The funding will help CT analyze the current status of EHR use in the state, identify barriers to adoption, assess provider eligibility for EHR subsidies, and create a statewide Medicaid health information technology plan.
