Funds may be used to purchase certified EHR technology or to upgrade existing equipment to meet certification criteria, train staff to use the technology or improve the secure exchange of health information through the North Carolina Health Information Exchange (NCHIE). Loan size (average of $40,000 – $60,000) will be based on the practice’s need for equipment and training. Those serving a disproportionate number of Medicaid/Medicare and indigent patients will be given top priority.
The NCMSF urges physicians to take advantage of this opportunity as it will make the transition to EHRs more efficient and less time consuming.
