Gov. Patrick to launch next phase of ‘MASS HIWAY’ health information exchange

Posted:

BOSTON, Mass.  – Governor Deval Patrick and HHS Secretary John Polanowicz will launch the next phase of the Mass HIway Health Information Exchange on Wednesday.

The two will join with health leaders at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center to demonstrate the innovative new tools that will allow providers for the first time to locate, request, and retrieve medical records from across the state on a secure, interconnected system with a click of a button.

This event includes a hands-on demonstration of the new technology in a simulated medical setting, where the Governor will witness doctors working to help a patient by retrieving the patient's health information from other health care organizations in real-time.
