Can my site use its own funds to purchase EDR and expedite implementation?
IHS funding for EDR implementation is limited each year. Sites that do not want to wait for IHS funded implementation and are willing to support EDR implementation with their own funds may do so using the IHS contract. Self funded costs vary widely depending on each site’s size, network configuration and Information Technology infrastructure. A self funded cost estimate can be obtained from Dr. George Chiarchiaro, EDR Project Manager at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Self funded sites must meet the same EDR readiness standards and will be placed on a separate implementation track from IHS nationally funded sites.
