Mississippi Health Partners, a managed care plan owned by 13 hospitals and more than 800 physicians, will create a health information exchange to serve employers and covered members as well as its provider members.

The Jackson-based organization will use HIE technology from the RelayHealth division of McKesson Corp. Services for patients will include online secure messaging to clinicians and practice staff, appointment scheduling, medication refill requests, educational materials and a personal health record automatically populated following an encounter.

Provider services will include management of physician referral requests, delivery of lab and radiology results, and online patient/clinician consultations. More information is available at mhpartners.com.
