Health Information Technology and behavioral health

The federal Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) has launched a useful online forum focused on Health Information Technology and behavioral health, the SAMHSA HIT Forum.   The purpose of the forum is to provide a space in which to share ideas and suggestions related to use of HIT by all kinds of providers and the challenges associated with the technology as experienced by consumers, families, and others.

Likely subjects on the forum include electronic health records systems, health information exchanges, specific hardware and software experiences, and consumer self-management approaches.   SAMHSA hopes the forum will be the place where advice is sought and shared.
