Redwood MedNet's HIE Plug: Low Cost Interoperability Solution For Small, Rural Practices

Sue Dormanen | CCI Voice | November 12, 2012

The latest Life as a CIO Blog by John D. Halamka features Will Ross of Redwood MedNet and the "HIE Plug" -- a low cost interoperability solution for small practices in rural locations.

The HIE Plug, a secure health data endpoint built on a generic small form factor hardware device with all open source software, was tested in a pilot deployment at three sites in early 2012, and is now rolling out to general production across dozens of health care facilities participating in Redwood MedNet.
