A New Sustainability Model for Healthcare Information Exchange
Posted Feb 05 2013 9:28pm
Many of us have worked hard on sustainability models for HIE over the last decade. There is one model we likely never considered.
The Massachusetts Health Information Highway is abbreviated the MassHIway. Its phone number is 1-800-MassHIway.
Unrelated to IT (or so we thought), Massachusetts legalized medical marijuana.
This is an actual transcript of a call we received today
Sean - “Hello, Mass HIway – how may I help you?”
Caller - “Yes, can you tell me how I become a marijuana grower/dispenser?”
It's clear we have to rethink the meaning of HIGH way.
