The Health Research and Services Administration has given a three-year grant to HealthInfoNet, the operator of Maine's health information exchange, to link the Department of Veterans Affairs' Maine Healthcare System to the HIE. The funding, which involves $300,000 in the first year with similar amounts expected in subsequent years, will be used to enable VA providers to access the state HIE and allow veterans to send their health information to private providers using the exchange.
