Free Health Information Technology Assistance for Medicaid Providers

With funding from Kansas Department of Health and Environment, Division of Health Care Finance (KDHE/DHCF), KFMC is providing free education and hands-on assistance to Medicaid providers to optimize their use of electronic health information technology.
