This webinar discusses how the SHIP programs for Texas and Georgia are Maximizing their SHIP funds. Texas utilized SHIP funds to support a hand-held ultrasound device project which 67 SHIP-eligible hospitals were able to take advantage of. Georgia discussed the process of how they are maximizing SHIP funds to develop SHIP projects through networks. Georgia develops projects with consultants and markets them to their SHIP-eligible hospitals. The hospitals are then able to choose which project they would like to participate in. This webinar also provides an update from the FORHP
