Overview

The TCC HIT Policy project uses shared learning to enhance academic-community partnerships by leveraging Health Information Technology (HIT) to develop, inform and implement public policies impacting health disparities relative to healthcare quality improvement, including insurance reforms, delivery and payment system reforms, health promotion and disease prevention, appropriate data collection and reporting, and comparative effectiveness research, based on the health equity agenda of the Affordable Care Act.

Specific Aims

  1. Policy Analysis: Identify and analyze HIT policies that impact the implementation and utilization of HIT in high disparity communities in GA and HHS Region IV
  2. Coalition Building: Build a collaborative region-wide coalition of community-level health stakeholders, to evaluate state and federal policies that positively affect HIT implementation in these communities
