Meet the HIHIT Team
Funding for the HIHIT programs was made possible on April 2, 2010, when the university received an American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) grant awarded by the Office of the National Coordinator, Health Information Technology to the Professional University Resources and Education for Health Information Technology(PURE-HIT) Consortium, a collaboration of Texas State University, the University of Texas at Austin and the University of Texas School of Biomedical Informatics. The consortium received 5.4 million dollars, the largest award in the nation among the nine programs funded for university-based education in Health IT.
In 2017, we joined the Texas McCombs Executive Education office. We are excited to be a part of Healthcare@McCombs and look forward to hearing from you!
