Spring 2010 Introduction

As the year progresses, the administration seems more committed to funding health information technology to improve access to care for minority and underserved populations. The Spring 2010 issue of Perspectives in Health Information Management will highlight the importance of creating a sustainable health information exchange and the innovative use of geographical information systems in helping to create access to care in rural areas.

Specifically, this issue will draw attention to the value of the New Jersey Health Information Exchange connecting hospitals in poor and underserved areas, the use of a geographical information system in evaluating rural health services, patient awareness of emergency care services, and access to care issues for rural veterans.
