Conn. State Medical Society, Kansas liability insurer strike partnership to form HIE

The Connecticut State Medical Society and Kansas Medical Mutual Insurance Company Health Solutions joined forces to create a statewide, physician-led health information exchange.

The HIE will enable physicians and hospitals to share patient information. It will also use analytic tools to improve clinical outcomes and reduce inefficiencies. The project will build on the work of the Kansas Health Information Network, another statewide HIE.

The organizations expect to launch the HIE in summer of 2017.
