Exchanging information electronically may become model
St. Louis Post-Dispatch, February 20, 2008
Two small rural hospitals in Southern Illinois, Washington County Hospital in Nashville and Salem Township Hospital in Salem, are creating a community-wide medical information exchange that will allow physicians, hospitals and other medical providers to electronically share patient information. The partnership establishes a network of health communication that many larger, more urban areas, including St. Louis, have failed to do.
