Electronic health IT grant directory now available
The Health IT Transition Group has released a health IT grant resource directory for hospitals, clinics, rural healthcare, as well as health IT software vendors who assist healthcare providers in fund development.

According to the Tulsa, Okla.-based publisher, the five-volume, electronically searchable directory provides detailed contact information on nearly 4,000 financiers including grant application deadline information and approach recommendations. The listing emphasizes primarily private sources of funding.

The directory includes health IT funding strategy discussions and offers examples and live links to relevant source materials.

The volumes organize grantmakers for the New England, Middle Atlantic, Southeast, Midwest, and West/Southwest regions of the United States. Resources were found in every state, the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico, ranging from a handful to more than 500 per state. More than 350 nationally-focused grantmakers are included.

The listings of private funding and other resources were compiled over a two-year research period. Potential funding sources were selected based on past funding patterns, magnitude of giving, and data collected from the tax records of thousands of grantmakers.
