LAST CHANCE: Virginia Annual Healthcare Broadband Survey Deadline November 16th

Virginia's Secretaries of Health and Human Resources and Technology and the Center for Innovative Technology have asked that we remind members to participate in the third annual online Broadband and Health Information Technology (IT) Usage Survey.   Again this year VHCA is working with the survey administrators, Broad Axe Technology Partners, to support the effort to identify gaps in broadband access.  

We encourage VHCA member nursing and assisted living facilities to participate in this annual survey to identify important gaps in broadband access, provide trend data related to how gaps are closing, and illustrate how health IT initiatives are being enabled and implemented over time.   Your responses will also be used by the Commonwealth to target federal broadband funding opportunities in support of identified health IT priorities.  Over 500 health care providers completed the survey last year leading to the creation of the Commonwealth of Virginia’s first interactive health IT broadband availability map.

The survey is designed to be completed in approximately 5 minutes.  Please take a few minutes to complete the survey and respond no later than November 16, 2012.  The survey can be accessed by clicking here or copying and pasting the URL into your web browser.  Facilities with questions or concerns about the survey should contact Broad Axe Technology Partners at survey@broadaxepartners.com.
