The National Association of State Chief Information Officers (NASCIO) yesterday released "Profiles of Progress 3: State Health IT Initiatives." The compendium is a summary of each state's health IT and health information interoperability status. The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA)allocated approximately $30 billion for health IT, which will be dispensed to state and regional efforts across the nation and will be used to invest, solidify and make sustainable health IT efforts in the states.
