The New Hampshire Health Information Organization (NHHIO) has chosen the Massachusetts eHealth Collaborative to direct and manage the state HIE.
NHHIO was created by the New Hampshire legislature as a nonprofit in 2011, charged with helping develop a statewide HIE. The Massachusetts eHealth Collaborative will help the NHHIO board of directors develop a platform of core services for secure information exchange between existing private, local and regional providers and partner organizations, with summary of care documents, lab results and imaging reports.
NHHIO is also using security services such as secure messaging, and future phases may include an electronic master patient index, record locator services and expansion to other partners. NHHIO also chose Orion Health as the technical vendor.
“The New Hampshire initiative is a great example of a private HIE that will be operated differently from the state run initiatives throughout the country,” Micky Tripathi, CEO of the Massachusetts eHealth Collaborative, said in a media release. “By doing a few things well for a few key constituents, we hope to incrementally build confidence in and utilization of HIE resources for future growth.”
