In order to advance patient-centered care and enable improvements in health care quality, affordability and outcomes for each person, family and business in New York, Governor Eliot Spitzer’s recently announced the launch of a comprehensive health information technology program. An initial $106 million will be invested in the health care community during 2007-2008 to support the implementation of health IT tools to allow portability of patients’ medical records and new tools to assess and target improvements in health care quality. The Office of Health Information Technology Transformation has been charged with coordinating health IT programs and policies across the public and private health care sectors. These programs and policies will establish the health IT infrastructure and capacity to support clinicians in quality-based reimbursement programs and new models of care delivery.
