eHealth Community Managers

eHealth Community Managers

MeHI's eHealth Community Managers are responsible for facilitating community eHealth maturity in their designated area of Massachusetts as part of the Connected Communities Program. Top priorities of an eHealth Community Manager's role are to initiate and maintain key stakeholder relationships, collaborate on ideas and challenges, facilitate exchange of best practices, and to generally clarify the dynamic Health IT ecosystem in support of broader Health IT adoption and use. 

The eHealth Community Managers represent MeHI as subject matter experts on essential Health IT projects and initiatives. They also organize outreach and educational activities in their region designed to encourage care providers and organizations to adopt and use interoperable EHRs and connect via HIE, to improve patient care and reduce healthcare costs.
