Grant funds from the federal Health Resources and Services Administration will enable Maine VA Medical Center in Augusta and 11 outpatient VA clinics across the state to exchange patient data with private hospitals, physician practices, mental health centers and community health centers.

HealthInfoNet, the statewide health information exchange, will use the three-year grant to connect the VA facilities to the HIE. The state has received first-year funding of $300,000 and expects about the same amount in the second and third years.
