PaperFree Florida to help move physicians towards electronic health records
Date:4/19/2010

Tampa, FL (April 19, 2010) -- The University of South Florida (USF) will help doctors across West Central Florida move towards electronic health records, with the support of a $5.9 million grant in federal stimulus funds, university and political leaders announced last week.

"The University of South Florida is the leader in healthcare and technology in the state of Florida and now is one of just a handful of universities across the entire country that is providing this leadership role," said U.S. Rep. Kathy Castor, D-Tampa, who helped secure the money awarded through the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act.

The project will not only improve health care delivery, but help the Tampa Bay region's economy, said USF President Judy Genshaft. "With Congressman Kathy Castor's support, USF has now stepped into the lead," Genshaft said. "We are one of the first regional initiatives in the nation to invest recovery dollars in a whole new professional work force combining health and information technology."

The project, PaperFree Florida, will help doctors transform how they care for patients, said Dr. Stephen Klasko, dean of the USF College of Medicine and CEO of USF Health.

"The revolution is starting here in Tampa Bay," Dr. Klasko said. "That revolution is about transformation and job creation. Transforming health care into a non-paper, decision-supported way of doing business so thatWe're not writing things down on pieces of paper and hoping that people get it right. It's about quality and safety and it's about job creation."

USF Health will use the grant to hire and train "e-ambassadors" to visit doctors' offices across West Central Florida. They will help doctors use and adopt electronic health records, acting as a resource to make doctors' transition to modern records simpler.

Electronic health records improve patient safety and can make health care more convenient for patients by allowing for such services
