The Center for Public Integrity is out with a new video that explains the importance of federal funding for behavioral health information technology. The video features the National Council and two of our member organizations: Mosaic in Timonium, MD and the McClendon Center in Washington, DC. From the Center for Public Integrity:
Providers of mental health and substance abuse treatment were frozen out of a $27 billion federal fund for conversion of medical records from paper to electronic form. That doesn’t make sense to them — or to their clients. So now they’re fighting for a piece of the pie on Capitol Hill. A Center video takes a look at the controversy — on the front lines and in the corridors of power.
