Developing Integrated Maternal and Child Health Information Systems: Promoting the Use of Health Information Technology

This announcement solicits applications for the Developing Integrated Maternal and Child Health Information Systems Promoting the Use of Health Information Technology.

One of the primary goals of the Office of Epidemiology, Policy, and Evaluation (OEPE) is to provide leadership in building and

enhancing maternal and child health (MCH) data capacity at the local, State, and national levels.

OEPE is placing emphasis on the area of electronic health information exchange thereby supporting one of the President's major healthcare objectives:
To increase the use of electronic health information technology and exchange as a means of controlling costs and reducing dangerous medical errors.

In addition, this project will support the five broad goals of the Maternal and Child Health Bureau (MCHB):
1) provide national leadership for MCH, 2) promote an environment that supports MCH, 3) eliminate health barriers and disparities, 4) improve the health infrastructure and systems of care, and 5) assure quality of care.

The OEPE has developed two separate but related projects that are intended to further the goal of electronic health information exchange while supporting the maternal and child health promotion goals of MCHB.
