MeHI is pleased to announce the release of four videos, which highlight the positive ways Health IT impacts care across Massachusetts from the providers' perspective. Available on the Multimedia section of our website, these videos showcase the benefits of implementing EHRs and sharing electronic data through a Health Information Exchange to improve the quality and efficiency of health care across the care continuum.

These videos feature several Massachusetts healthcare professionals who each discuss the value of adopting Health IT, as well as those who are actively pursuing projects that further the interoperability of EHRs.

We would like to thank the Massachusetts healthcare professionals who participated in the interviews, as well as the many staff and patients who agreed to be filmed. The professionals and facilities featured, include:

Paul Bergeron, MD ­ Central Mass. Independent Physician Association ­ Worcester, MA
Lawrence Garber, MD ­ Reliant Health Care ­ Worcester, MA
Marie Hobart, MD ­ Community Healthlink ­ Worcester, MA
Holly Oh, MD ­ The Dimock Center ­ Boston, MA
