The Kansas Department of Health and Environment will distribute $7.1 million to the two networks providing digital exchange of health information.
This news release stats the funds will be released to networks based on how many providers they sign up to participate, with more being paid for rural providers, which obviously is an important factor in setting up an HIE in Kansas.
Do rural providers have the technology that allows them to connect to an HIE?
This will be an interesting story to follow.
