Health Information Technology & AKAIMS Advisory Committee

Overview

The purpose of the Health Information Technology and AKAIMS Advisory Committee is to establish collaboration between DHSS/Behavioral Health grantee treatment providers and stakeholders to address current and emerging issues of the behavioral health field with health information technology (HIT). Recent federal legislation is driving health systems toward the use of information technology for service delivery, quality improvement, cost containment, and increased patient control of personal health care and related information. Insuring that Division IT resources provide an effective and efficient electronic application for state and provider needs is critical. It is in the best interest of the Division and the behavioral health treatment provider network to anticipate and collaborate within this changing landscape assuring the current and future DBH technology applications are effective.
