Wichita officials concede push for health exchange to state

Wichita Business Journal, November 10, 2009
The Wichita (KS) Health Information Exchange was formed earlier this year by the Medical Society of Sedgwick County to help establish a health information exchange at the local level that would enable hospitals, laboratories, imaging centers, and other providers to share patient information like test results and medication lists. It originally planned to have a pilot program in place by the end of this year. However, when the Kansas Department of Health and Environment formed a 31-member consortium to lay the groundwork for a statewide HIE this past month, Wichita opted to take a back seat rather than lead the charge.
