Tuesday Beshear said six hospitals and one clinic are the first participants in the Kentucky Health Information Exchange.
The project is funded by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services. It allows the Kentucky Department for Medicaid Services to begin exchanging information with hospitals and clinics, as the first step in creating a statewide network.
The exchange is seen as a way to deliver care more efficiently and to improve patient care.
The initial seven participating providers are: Appalachian Regional HealthCare, Central Baptist Hospital, Pikeville Medical Center, St. Joseph Hospital, Trover Medical Clinic, the University of Kentucky Hospital, and the University of Louisville Hospital.
