Wide River Technology Extension Center (TEC) was awarded the Regional Extension Center cooperative grant agreement for the state of Nebraska in February 2010. Wide River TEC offers technical assistance, guidance and information on best practices to support and accelerate healthcare providers' efforts to become meaningful users of Electronic Health Records (EHRs), as well as the ability to exchange health information with other providers and agencies.
Regional Extension Centers were established as part of the Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health (HITECH) Act. $6.6 million was awarded to CIMRO of Nebraska, the Medicare Quality Improvement Organization for the state of Nebraska, as a four-year cooperative agreement grant from The Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology (ONC) to establish Wide River TEC to assist Nebraska healthcare providers with implementing and using EHRs.
Wide TEC operates as a separate business unit within Nebraska, the Medicare Quality Improvement Organization, located in Lincoln, Nebraska. CIMRO Nebraska manages and oversees functions of Wide River TEC.
