The Minnesota Health Information Exchange will conduct a pilot program with a dozen long-term care facilities to enable providers to access more patient clinical information.

The HIE is partnering with Aging Services of Minnesota, an association of more than 1,000 organizations providing a range of services to 100,000 seniors. The HIE is a cost-effective way to introduce the exchange of clinical information to members, says Lori Meyer, senior vice president at the association.

Minnesota's HIE currently supports the exchange of medication, laboratory and immunization history, and eligibility information and clinical care documents. It plans soon to offer electronic prescribing software. More information is available at mnhie.org.
