HHS grants $267 million for more regional extension centers, thousands of jobs

WASHINGTON – The Department of Health and Human Services announced Tuesday awards for more than $267 million to 28 non-profit organizations to establish Health Information Technology Regional Extension Centers.

The grants from the $2 billion allotted for healthcare IT under the 2009 American Recovery and Reinvestment Act and follows 32 HHS for grants issued last February for regional extension centers (RECs).


Study points to critical gaps in hospital data security

NASHVILLE – Even as providers work to update their security environments, hospital data continues to be at serious risk, according to the 2010 HIMSS Analytics Report: Security of Patient Data.

Despite new statutory requirements for healthcare privacy and security, the study found critical gaps in data security – and its findings suggested that efforts to keep data safe were often more reactive than proactive, with hospitals dedicating more resources to breach response than to breach prevention.
