Federal states have so far received $4 billion in funding to revamp their health information exchange infrastructures as they aim to fulfill the Affordable Care Act’s requirements, the Washington Post reported Sunday.
Amanda White of research firm Deltek writes California, Oregon and New York are among the states that have tapped vendors, established exchanges and developed portals to inform consumers about the new systems.
These efforts have opened new business opportunities for contractors, according to the report.
Fresh HIE-related projects aim to seek markets and develop strategies and states expect to secure more funding through 2014, according to White.
Washington, D.C. recently awarded contracts intended to help citizens buy health plans.
