Health Care Information Enterprise Integration Research Centers
The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) has $300 million in competitive grant funding for the development and use of health information technologies (HIT) and complementary fields. The money is available to institutions of higher education or consortiums that might include nonprofit organizations and/or federal government laboratories.
The research will be part of the multidisciplinary Centers for Health Care Information Enterprise Integration, which NIST is establishing in consultation with the National Science Foundation and other federal agencies.
Suggested research areas include software that improves connectivity among health information systems, health information technology security, and relevant health information technology to reduce medical errors.
