North Carolina will be working with pediatric and family practices within Community Care of North Carolina to build on a strong public-private partnership that has documented successes in quality improvement, efficiency and cost-effectiveness of care for more than 14 years. North Carolina, via the Division of Medical Assistance (DMA) and the Office of Rural Health and Community Care (ORHCC), was awarded 9.2 million dollars to work on three of the five categories of the CHIPRA Quality Demonstration Grant; A, C and D. The grant projects as outlined in the statute will:

(B) promote the use of health information technology (HIT) for the delivery of care for children;
