While the NC House was relatively quiet this week, the NC Senate was busy with several legislative proposals including one bill, HB 395 – HIE Deadline Extension and Patient Protection, which would extend the deadline for connection to the state’s Health Information Exchange (NC HealthConnex) for certain groups. To help inform the discussion, the NCMS circulated a survey asking you for input on your experience in connecting to the HIE. Thank you to those who have already responded. If you haven’t yet weighed in, please do so here. The survey is only four questions long and your answers will be helpful as we advocate on your behalf on this issue.

Watch as NCMS Director of Legislative Relations Sue Ann Forrest, MPA, fills you in on other bills that are under consideration. And be sure to visit our legislative blog for summaries of all the bills we’re tracking.
