HRSA is the primary Federal agency for improving access to health care services for people who are uninsured, isolated or medically vulnerable. Comprising six bureaus and 12 offices, HRSA provides leadership and financial support to health care providers in every state and U.S. territory. HRSA grantees provide health care to uninsured people, people living with HIV/AIDS, and pregnant women, mothers and children. They train health professionals and improve systems of care in rural communities. HRSA oversees organ, tissue and blood cell (bone marrow and cord blood) donation and vaccine injury compensation programs, and maintains databases that protect against health care malpractice and health care waste, fraud and abuse.
“HRSA has been highly successful in supporting a large constituency and a tremendous workload through the use of EHBs – 1,200 federal employees, 20,000 external users, 200 active programs, 15,000 annual awards, more than $6B in annual federal financial assistance – what they have accomplished through the use of this technology is significant and REI is proud to be a part of it” says Veer Bhartiya, REI Systems President. “We have worked in partnership with HRSA since 2001 and welcome their adoption of EHBs as the enterprise business process management system to support their mission of providing the resources and services needed to improve access to quality health care. REI is committed to providing HRSA with the combination of technical and subject matter expertise that will continue to produce significant results to HRSA in meeting its goals.”
