AeHN “spotlighted” by ONC for efforts to increase public awareness

Alaska eHealth Network has been “spotlighted” by ONC for our efforts to increase public knowledge and comfort level with EHRs and HIEs. Alaska’s health care leaders have emphasized patient engagement from the outset of their HIE planning process. The state’s HIE plan includes patient engagement as one of its strategic imperatives; to that end, AeHN and DHSS staff have communicated with patients and consumers
using email, newsletters, Twitter feeds, and Facebook posts. AeHN’s website includes patient-specific content that answers questions related to HIE, such as “What is HIE?” and “Why is HIT important to me?”
