"We're like the primer coat of paint for these doctor's offices, and then they can go and flourish from there," Dr. Klasko said.

At the news conference announcing the grant, Dr. Hugo Navarte, assistant professor of medicine at USF Health, demonstrated how electronic records can provide faster, more accurate information about their patients.

"I can make much more informed decisions and provide better quality of care," said Dr. Navarte, who began using electronic records a few years ago.

Before the switch, for example, if a patient of another doctor called with a medical question on the weekend, and Dr. Navarte was on call, he would have few choices about how to help that patient.

They also can stop a doctor who is, for example, a
