Georgia Health Information Technology Extension Center (GA-HITEC) is Georgia’s Health IT Center for assisting clinicians in the redesign of healthcare delivery through the successful adoption of Electronic Health Records. Our goal is to support clinicians as they use health information technology to manage and coordinate patient care. This goal aligns with Morehouse School of Medicine’s, National Center for Primary Care’s mission to minimize disparities and employ clinical models to achieve health equity.

GA-HITEC is a trusted resource for clinicians in implementing proven strategies that advance the interoperability of Health IT and clinical practice transformation through the use of technology.  As experts, GA-HITEC leads the way in educating health care professionals, as they increase patient delivery efforts by providing technical assistance to hundreds of clinicians across Georgia. GA-HITEC is privileged to support successful participation in the Meaningful Use EHR Incentive Program, and Quality Payment Program-MIPS (Merit-based Incentive Payment System).
GA-HITEC health information product, Georgia Health Connect (GaHC), became the first regional health information exchange connecting to Georgia’s statewide Health Information Network, GaHIN.  Providers are now able to bridge the health information gap by magnifying care coordination and improving quality of care.

GA-HITEC is at the nucleus of the nation’s health information technology capital, keeping clinicians informed and facilitating patient care continuity.
