The article focuses on the removal of the $600 million funding for electronic health record adoption from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act in the U.S. According to the author, despite the removal of such funding, long-term care facilities still hope that the law will enhance interoperability with acute care providers. Maid Alwan, director of the American Association of Homes and Services for the Aging (AAHSA) Center for Aging Services Technology, the law offers all providers a singular opportunity to connect with each other.
