The REC Program
The Regional Extension Center (REC) program is administered by the Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology, an agency of the US Department of Health and Human Services.
The REC program’s national goal is to bring 100,000 primary care providers to meaningful use of EHRs. VHIT’s goal is to bring 2,285 or more Virginia primary care providers to meaningful use of EHRs, which is 20% of all Virginia PCPs.
VHIT 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.
As Virginia’s REC, we work closely with other ONC grantees and with the Commonwealth’s health IT programs. We also participate in a national learning network with other RECs that helps us quickly identify EHR best practices and success strategies that can help Virginia providers.
