The Core Public Health Subcommittee will be hosting a webinar on the Kentucky-designed statewide health information exchange, KHIE, on March 24, 2017 at 10:00AM EST.   Polly Mullins-Bentley, the Deputy Executive Director of KHIE, will provide an overview of the history of electronic health information in the state of Kentucky and the vision for how health information exchange can improve medical care throughout the state.
