About Us

We're HITEC-LA and we’re here to help Power Your Practice.

Health Information Technology Extension Center for Los Angeles County (HITEC-LA) is dedicated to helping Los Angeles County health care providers implement and meaningfully use electronic health records (EHRs) by providing high quality, personalized technical assistance.

As one of 62 Regional Extension Centers (RECs) across the country funded in large part by a grant from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), HITEC-LA seeks to transform Los Angeles County's health care delivery system by helping providers implement and effectively use EHRs to provide high quality, efficient care for patients.

HITEC-LA is an independent, non-profit organization working as a project of L.A. Care Health Plan, the nation’s largest publicly operated health plan, who is also dedicated to supporting safety net providers. Approximately two-thirds of L.A. County's primary care providers are contracted network providers of L.A. Care, so in working with HITEC-LA, both organizations can support providers and further improve the quality care for all patients in Los Angeles County.
