The NC Health and Wellness Trust Fund Commission (HWTF) has developed a pilot program that provides Electronic Health Record (EHR) loans specifically focusing on small rural/underserved and urban primary care practices.
This pilot program will allow primary care practices access to the capital required to purchase an EHR prior to the onset of the ARRA-funded federal incentive program under Medicaid and Medicare. Specifically, the program provides loans to Tier One Primary Care Providers for the following purposes:
To facilitate the purchase of a certified EHR technology or upgrade existing EHR technology to meet certification criteria;
To train personnel in the use of such technology; and/or
To improve the secure electronic exchange of health information.
