HealthInfoNet, the health information exchange for Maine, is one of five state HIEs to receive federal grants to facilitate the sharing of records between behavioral health and general medical providers.

The Maine Department of Health and Human Services got the $600,000 grant from the Center for Integrated Health Solutions and funneled the money to the HIE. The center is a joint initiative of the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration and the Health Resources Services Administration.

In Maine, the grant will link 25 behavioral health organizations with 200 individual providers. Other states receiving grants include Kentucky, Illinois, Oklahoma and Rhode Island. More information on the Center for Integrated Health Solutions is available here.
