Kentucky gets millions in health grants

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.
