Information Week writes about Pennsylvania's eHealth Collaborative and the grant program that promotes exchanging health information over the internet.
Healthcare providers have until Aug. 15 to apply for free direct messaging services through an approved health information service provider (HISP). The PA eHealth Collaborative will pay HISPs $250 for each healthcare provider they register to exchange data using direct messaging.
According to PA eHealth Collaborative officials, as many as 8,000 providers could potentially take advantage of the program. This includes hospitals and health systems, community clinics, doctors and other licensed providers, and pharmacies and independent laboratories.
