Qsource heads TN health IT push

Memphis-based QSource will receive $7.3 million in federal funding to establish a regional extension center in its Nashville office to help health care organizations transition to electronic medical records. The Nashville center will be one of 70 created nationwide through $1 billion in funding through the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009. The state of Tennessee is receiving $11.7 million in Stimulus funding to help health care providers transition to the use of electronic medical records, a transition mandated by the federal government. QSource, which is also Tennessee’s Medicare quality improvement organization, will head up the effort. Memphis Bus. Journal has the story.
