QSource - ePrescribing Grant Opportunity
There is a national movement underway to improve the quality of healthcare through the use of health information technology (HIT). QSource is administering a grant to cover the start-up costs of implementing HIT, specifically ePrescribing, into your practice.
The Tennessee General Assembly has authorized funding for a Physician Connectivity grant to accelerate the use of ePrescribing. The State will reimburse actual costs not to exceed $3,500 per Tennessee licensed physician and actual costs not to exceed $6,000 per treatment site to develop the infrastructure to connect to the Tennessee eHealth Exchange Zone. Funds are intended to cover expenses related to the first year of broadband service. All grantees are expected to participate in ePrescribing for two years through RxHub or SureScripts.
Physicians must be licensed in Tennessee, actively practicing and in good standing with the licensure board. The following types of practices have been designated for priority disbursement:
- Family Practice
- General Practice
- Internal Medicine
- Obstetrics and Gynecology
- Public Health and General Preventative Medicine
- Internal Medicine/Pediatrics
