The Massachusetts Statewide Health Information Exchange
The Massachusetts Statewide Health Information Exchange (HIE) was launched in October to encourage and foster communication about patients between providers. The HIE is essentially a tool for secure communication from provider to provider. The HIE will also connect solo providers (for a nominal fee) without an EHR to larger health system organizations that have an EHR by providing a secure system to email and discuss the patient, and also allow for patient data to be securely transmitted between providers.
