WORCESTER — The Central Massachusetts Independent Physician Association has been selected by the Massachusetts eHealth Institute at the Massachusetts Technology Collaborative to receive a grant for $75,000 to support connecting to the statewide Health Information Exchange, the Mass HIway, helping improve patient care and reduce costs.

The association will pilot this program with two primary care providers, Dr. George M. Abraham and Dr. Sunita Godiwala, and a skilled nursing facility, Jewish Health Care Center of Worcester. The organization's long-term goal is to connect all Central Massachusetts Independent Physician Association providers to the Mass HIway, enabling integration that will impact health care by demonstrating measurable improvements in care quality, population health and health care costs.

CMIPA is a network of independent physicians in Central Massachusetts dedicated to providing high-quality care to their patients and supporting each other in independent practice.
