The Illinois Public Health Institute is partnering with the Aging and Disability Business Institute of the National Association of Area Agencies on Aging (n4a) to facilitate a Health Information Technology Learning Collaborative (HITLC). The HITLC will assist aging and disability community-based organizations (CBOs) in making strategic decisions around investing in health information technology (HIT) systems to collect, manage and analyze service data while enhancing program quality, client satisfaction and service reimbursement. Up to 12 CBOs will receive targeted technical assistance and a platform to share what they learn. The key outcome of participation in the HITLC will be the successful implementation and use of administrative systems to grow the capacity and impact of participating CBOs, and the development of tools that can assist the larger field of CBOs with the decision-making process.
Applications to participate in the learning collaborative are due September 14, 2018. Additional information, including the call for applications, a recording of the informational webinar, and slides from the informational webinar are available on the Aging and Disability Business Institute’s website.
