Beacon Community Programs Show Mixed Progress on Health IT, Quality Measures
Beacon Community programs have had mixed progress on health IT use and quality measures, according to a new report funded by the Office of the National Coordinator for Health IT. The 2009 federal economic stimulus package included funds for Beacon Community grants aimed at helping health care providers use health IT in their communities. ONC has funded 17 Beacon Communities nationwide.
