The next step for the FQHC, South Cove Community Health Center, is to get up and running with the Mass. HIE. "Participating in the HIE should make it much easier to collaborate with other agencies in terms of electronically receiving results, imaging, screenings, and progress notes into our EHR. This will really complete the journey of going paperless and allow our providers to have access to important information that might change the way they treat the patient," said Brook Hailu, South Cove's quality improvement program manager.
