Fiscal Note Summary

Effect this measure will have on costs and revenues of state government.

This legislation terminates the West Virginia Health Information Network which was established to promote the design, implementation, operation and maintenance of a fully interoperable statewide network to facilitate public and private use of health care information in the state. The Network is funded by Special Revenue (WV Code §16-29G-4) and is projected to be sustainable from collections of a participation fee in the future. The Network has six (6) full-time equivalent positions but three (3) positons are vacant. If the Network is eliminated, three (3) staff will be laid off. Since this is special revenue, there will be no impact to the State.
