The Regional Extension Center (REC) program is administered by the Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology, an agency of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.
In the U.S., more than 157,000 providers are currently enrolled with REC and 146,000 have a live EHR. Of these, more than 116,000 have demonstrated meaningful use. Physician Services’ goal is to bring 2,285 or more Virginia primary care providers to meaningful use of EHRs, which is 20% of all Virginia Primary Care Physicians.
Physician Services is Virginia’s statewide REC. We were one of the first 32 RECs to receive Federal funding, and are one of more than 60 RECs that cover the entire nation. Thanks to extended federal funding, we now are able to assist qualifying practices through early April 2016.
