New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo's annual budget proposal includes $1.2 billion to restructure hospitals, long-term care and other healthcare services, as well as a $95 million plan to digitize health records.

The proposals are part of the governor's $142.1 billion budget in which he allocated more than half— roughly $79 billion—to healthcare. Cuomo’s budget calls for grants to “improve the financial viability and efficiency” of the state’s hospitals, nursing homes and other healthcare operators. New financing would promote mergers and consolidation; an increase in primary care and care coordination; and efforts that better match supply and demand for hospital and nursing home beds.

The governor also proposed a $95 million plan to digitize health records, using $65 million in state funds and $30 million from the federal government's Medicaid program.
