The Health Information Technology Council meets Wednesday, May 27, from 9 - 10:30 a.m., at 1 Ashburton Place, 11th Floor, in the Matta Conference Room.

This coming Wednesday's meeting promises to be very interesting and informative. Council members will be hearing presentations from John Halamka of MA-SHARE (Mass Simplifying Healthcare Among Regional Entities), Greg DeBor of the NEHEN (New England Healthcare Electronic Data Interchange Network), and Ray Campbell of the MHDC (Mass Health Data Consortium). We will also be reviewing a draft plan for the statewide implementation of interconnected electronic health records. Come to listen! Stay to learn! This work will have an impact on every Massachusetts healthcare consumer . . . and that means YOU!
