NY Gov. Cuomo allocates $6M to upgrade IT for children's behavioral health

Gov. Andrew Cuomo of New York awarded nearly $50,000 each to 122 behavioral health providers to develop and enhance their IT infrastructure.

The one-time fund will enable providers to purchase IT upgrades including EHRs, billing software, new servers, computers, routers and other hardware. Additionally, the funding will help train staff on using the new technology.

"This administration is committed to providing the best possible healthcare environment for our state's children," Gov. Cuomo said in a statement. "As we transform and modernize the behavioral healthcare system, this funding will help providers utilize technology to streamline services and continue to improve the lives of young people across the state."
