Federal guidelines require EHR systems to include data exchange
capabilities that incorporate the Direct Standards, which aim to
replace paper-based and proprietary exchanges with more advanced and
cost-conscious electronic systems. These grants can accelerate
development of a direct-enabled records system and offset the cost of
developing and implementing the interfaces.
"These awards move us one step closer toward our goal of having every
provider in the Commonwealth connected to the HIway," stated Laurance
Stuntz, Director of the Massachusetts eHealth Institute at MassTech.
"These grants will support some of the state's smaller providers to
transition onto the HIway, which will fill in critical gaps in
information sharing and move us closer to truly statewide adoption."
In 2012, the Executive Office of Health and Human Services launched the
statewide health information exchange. The Vendor Interface Grants are
part of the Mass HIway 'Last Mile Program,' funded through the State
Health Information Exchange Program at the U.S. Department of Health
and Human Services' Office of the National Coordinator of Health IT
