‘Mission Has Changed’ for Calif. Health Data Exchange
At last week's Redwood MedNet Conference, titled Connecting California To Improve Patient Care 2012, Pamela Lane -- deputy secretary of Health Information Exchange at the California Health and Human Services Agency -- acknowledged that the "mission has changed" for the state's health information exchange. The strategic and operational plan for the statewide HIE has been revised, and the UC-Davis Health System is set to take over as the state's new HIE partner. For more on the conference, see Friday's Capitol Desk post.
