Deadline for the Virginia Annual Healthcare Broadband Survey Due TODAY

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 fifth annual online Broadband and Health Information Technology (IT) Usage Survey. 

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.   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 five minutes.  Please take a few minutes to complete the survey and respond no later than TODAY.  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.

In addition to helping provide critical data for policymakers regarding our leadership - and remaining gaps - in Health IT utilization and broadband coverage, all participants will be registered to win a new iPhone 6 just in time for the holidays.
