Massachusetts HIE Gives $1.3M in Grants to IT Vendors to Increase EHR Interoperability

The Massachusetts eHealth Institute has announced close to $1.3 million in vendor grant funding for projects aimed at increasing interoperability of providers' electronic health record systems, fostering data exchange.

The Mass HIway Vendor Interface Grant Program focused on vendors supporting hospitals and other healthcare organizations, with a particular emphasis on those working with small physician practices, long-term care facilities or behavioral health organizations.

"These awards move us another step closer toward our goal of having every provider in the Commonwealth connected to the HIway," said Laurance Stuntz, director of the Massachusetts eHealth Institute at the Massachusetts Technology Collaborative, in the release. "These grants will support providers across the state and in our most vulnerable care settings in adopting the HIway, which will fill in critical gaps in information sharing and move us closer to truly statewide adoption."

Grantees include Aprima Medical Software, ClaimTrak, ComChart, DiCom Grid, eClinical Works, eHana, HealthWyse, McKesson, MEDfx, NexJ and NoMoreClipboard.
