The SIM Health IT Council will hold its first meeting today at 1pm at the LOB. Commissioner Bremby of DSS, which has been given responsibility for developing an Health IT plan for the state, presented on the state’s plans at the last SIM steering committee meeting.

The SIM workforce council has been placed on hold. Only one of the three original workforce proposals was included in the final SIM applications. UConn will no longer be leading that effort.
