Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) recently announced a funding opportunity to expand access to mental health services and substance abuse services focusing on the treatment, prevention, and awareness of opioid abuse. HRSA will award approximately $195 million in Access Increases in Mental Health and Substance Abuse Services (AIMS) to eligible health centers. OpenEMR, an open-source, cost-effective and ONC Certified Complete EHR, is well positioned for health centers to make the most of this funding opportunity.

The applications are due by July 26, 2017. Each health center can be awarded up to $150,000. Applications are completed and submitted online at HRSA’s website, and every health center that is eligible should not forfeit this opportunity to install or improve their EHR implementation.

Awarded funds from HRSA can go towards telehealth, prescription drug monitoring programs, clinical decision support, new or improved EHR implementation, quality improvement, cybersecurity, other training, and/or other health information technology.

This is an opportunity for eligible clinics to install or improve their EHR implementation.
