Health Care Information Technology Fund


To further our progress on Health IT, in 2008 the Vermont legislature established a Health-IT Fund in the state treasury to be used for health care information technology programs and initiatives such as those outlined in the Vermont health information technology plan, including:
  • A program to provide electronic health information systems and practice management systems for primary care practitioners in Vermont;
  • Financial support for Vermont Information Technology Leaders (VITL) to build and operate the health information exchange network;
  • Implementation of the Vermont Blueprint for Health information technology initiatives and the advanced medical home project; and
  • Consulting services for installation, integration, and clinical process re-engineering relating to the utilization of healthcare information technology such as electronic medical records.

NOTE:  The HIT and HCCA assessments payment due date is now due annually on 1/1/13.
