Welcome to our first edition of NEHII’s e-newsletter!
Each month, we’ll share news and information with you about your health information exchange and the work the NEHII team is doing for you.
I think it’s fair to say this is an extraordinary time, like nothing any of us has ever experienced before. As COVID-19 started to appear in Nebraska, NEHII answered the call, using technology to create our COVID-19 data-monitoring dashboard. Connecting patient data from across the state allows health care professionals on the front-line to monitor the virus outbreak, enabling a rapid response. (To learn more about the dashboard, read the article below.)
Since our founding in 2008, NEHII has been committed to enabling a healthier Nebraska and the region through the availability of health information. That commitment remains strong today -- and we’re just getting started! We’d love to hear from you. Contact us with any questions or concerns you have. I look forward to communicating with you, via this new channel, and face-to-face when we’re once again able to do that safely.
Jaime Bland, DNP, RN
