This article reports that two health care industry groups called on the U.S. Congress to establish state revolving loan funds (SRF) to help hospitals, nursing homes, and other health care providers upgrade and improve information technology, including hardware, software, and computerized clinical information systems. The proposed health care SRFs could be leveraged with tax-exempt bonds, similar to the way existing SRFs for wastewater and drinking water are leveraged with bonds.
