HIT Toolkit for Family Physicians
The Louisiana Academy of Family Physicians (LAFP) and the LHIT Resource Center (LHIT) worked together to develop a comprehensive toolkit to help guide physicians through the process of adopting an electronic health record (EHR) and achieving Meaningful Use. The E-Louisiana HIT Toolkit is available to all members of the LAFP and LHIT courtesy of a grant awarded by the Physicians Foundation.
