San Francisco Chronicle

The Obama administration plans to announce today the selection of 15 communities that will share in $220 million worth of grants for pilot projects to test health-care information technology.

The money comes from the economic stimulus legislation passed last year and is intended to encourage development and use of systems to connect doctors, hospitals and patients, according to a White House official speaking on the condition of anonymity before the announcement.
