I would like to commend you for the informative audio-cast featuring Wayne Sensor, chief executive officer of Alegent Health. His comments were inspirational and enlightening to those of us in healthcare dedicated to empowering consumers through technology. It is clear that with his guidance, Alegent is a leader in developing consumer engagement tools that can serve as a model for the industry.
In the state of Florida, we have voluntarily formed the Florida Association of RHIOs, to ensure that each healthcare information exchange organization shares its best practices and lessons learned with its counterparts throughout the state. We were recently awarded a grant from the state Agency of Health Care Administration to launch a public-awareness campaign related to electronic health records and patient health records, and seek to build consumer demand, hence financial viability for RHIOs. We appreciate the insights shared by way of this excellent audio-cast.
