Federal Agencies Provide Grants to State Organizations to Boost Health Info Tech for HIV/AIDS

August 28, 2009

The HHS department has awarded a $2.8 million grant to the Stevens Institute of Technology in Hoboken, N.J., "to create an electronic system to boost the care of women of color with HIV/AIDS," HealthcareITNews reports. S. Vincent Grasso -- a member of the Stevens Healthcare Information Technology Management Advisory Board and seminar leader for the Stevens Healthcare Educational Partnership -- who will serve as the technical lead for the effort, said the project is of particular importance because CDC in 2008 released findings showing that minority women are disproportionately affected by the disease (Monegain, 8/27).

In a separate story, HealthcareITNews reports that the Health Resources and Services Administration awarded the Northwest Pennsylvania AIDS Alliance with a $45,188 grant to develop a new computer network for its providers and clients (Monegain, 8/27).
