With the flurry of activity taking place both in Maryland and throughout the nation to implement electronic health records and make them interoperable via health information exchanges, the topic has received an increased amount of media attention.
Last week, the Baltimore Sun ran a positive article on Maryland’s leadership in health IT, and HIE in particular. Clearly with Maryland’s unique legislation incenting EHR use among physicians and the state’s hospital systems’ willingness to work together, Maryland is on the leading edge.
iHealthBeat, a trade publication sponsored by the California Healthcare Foundation, also covered the Maryland HIE.
The Baltimore Business Journal also ran a profile on AI last week, focusing on the angle of how small businesses are adapting to the changing economic landscape.
