CliniSync, Ohio's statewide health information exchange, has expanded with the participation of federally qualified health centers Lower Lights Christian Health Center, Southeast and Columbus Neighborhood Health Center. "The addition of federally qualified health centers to CliniSync is the foundation of the federal program initiated by the Office of the National Coordinator (ONC) for HIT, which is to reach out to physicians and facilities in rural and urban communities where technology is the most needed, yet scarce resources often prevent its implementation," said Dan Paoletti, CEO of the Ohio Health Information Partnership, which oversees the HIE.
