State and local initiatives may also play a big role in financing solutions, though their announcements may not appear on national web sites. It is advisable to regularly visit State and Local Government web sites to monitor new funding opportunities, especially those related to providers who primarily serve Medicaid and uninsured patients. Information regarding direct funding or new loan programs may also be available at meetings held by professional associations, relevant County and State agencies, and local chambers of commerce. These forums also provide an opportunity to make the case regarding the need for support for health IT implementation.
