Kentucky getting federal money to improve health records

FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) - Kentucky has been awarded nearly $10
million in federal funding to improve electronic health records.
The funding will be administered by the Governor's Office of
Electronic Health Information Technology to expand and build a
statewide health information exchange.
Gov. Steve Beshear says the funding will result in new high-tech
jobs.
The money will allow the state to expand the Kentucky Health
Information Exchange, which is being funded by a Medicaid
transformation grant. Plans call for the exchange to be piloted in
the spring by six hospitals and a clinic.
