Community eHealth Assessments

MeHI's eHealth Community Managers assessed the needs of healthcare stakeholders throughout 15 communities in Massachusetts. The purpose of the needs assessments was to gain a better understanding of the Health IT ecosystem at a state and local level to inform the development of Community and Statewide eHealth Plans. The following are assessment reports from the Northeast region which will be integrated into the statewide plan.
