Area agencies awarded money to bolster technology infrastructure

Andrew M. Cuomo today announced $10 million in awards to help non-profit behavioral health and developmental disability service providers improve and develop their technological infrastructure. These awards will be used by providers to strengthen information technology operations as New York State continues the transition to Medicaid Managed Care for Behavioral Health and Developmental Disability healthcare. This funding, secured in the 2015-16 Enacted Budget and awarded by a Request for Proposal process, will be used by providers to purchase technology upgrades including hardware, software and services. The monies can also be used to educate staff on how to better use health information management systems.
