MetaStar operates the Wisconsin Health Information Technology Extension Center (WHITEC), one of a select group of regional extension centers across the United States dedicated to helping physicians and other practitioners navigate the complex electronic health record (EHR) marketplace by providing them with unbiased information, technical assistance and support. WHITEC’s first mission is to enable priority primary care providers in the state of Wisconsin to become meaningful users of EHR technology.
Created through the HITECH Act, a provision of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009, WHITEC's long term goal is ensuring that all Wisconsin health care professionals are able to achieve meaningful use of electronic health records and improve health care quality and efficiency in their practices. WHITEC can assist practices who have already implemented an EHR as well as those who are just beginning the process. Services are available to all health care professionals practicing in Wisconsin, but federal subsidies are available for qualifying priority care practitioners.
