Ann Arbor, Mich.-based College of Healthcare Information Management Executives (CHIME) and the Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology (ONC) have issued a joint letter to Regional Extension Center (REC) project officers across the nation seeking their collaboration in achieving an electronically enabled healthcare system.

The letter encourages RECs to align themselves with CHIME StateNet Coordinators to realize their health information technology initiatives and help providers in their geographic service areas select, successfully implement, and meaningfully use certified electronic health record technology.

The letter offers to connect RECs with experienced CIOs in their state who have successfully implemented EHRs in their organizations. These CIOs also have managed vendor relations, optimized workflows, implemented privacy and security policies to comply with regulatory requirements, and engaged important stakeholders in the process.
