Secure and timely communication from local Emergency Room provides greater opportunity for medication management for clients at The Mental Health Center of Greater Manchester


As the need for mental health services and substance abuse treatment continue to rise in the state, timely communication from emergency rooms to those in the care team becomes increasingly important. That’s why the Mental Health Center of Greater Manchester looked to Elliot Hospital as their top priority when implementing their new integrated Direct secure messaging component in their electronic health record (EHR) system, NetSmart’s My Avatar.

The New Hampshire Health Information Organization (NHHIO), which operates a statewide health information exchange, recently established a connection with the Veterans Administration to enable hospitals and other provider organizations to get additional health information about vets they are treating.

Veterans often do not get all their healthcare through the VA, and other providers typically have had to rely on paper-based methods when dealing with VA, says Jeff Loughlin, a veteran and executive director of NHHIO.

Thus, an electronic connection will speed and improve the quality of care, he believes. “This connection helps to remove some of the barriers in communication and care that veterans face on a daily basis.”

Hundreds of New Hampshire veterans now have access to better care


Concord, NH, November 29, 2016
– On the heels of the day Americans devote to remember and celebrate our veterans and the sacrifices they make to serve and protect our country, New Hampshire takes a giant leap forward towards improving the healthcare provided for those veterans in our state. New Hampshire Health Information Organization (NHHIO), the state-wide health information exchange (HIE) organization, announced today that they are now able to connect with the Veterans Administration (VA), enabling the exchange of healthcare information with hospitals and other healthcare providers in the state who also provide care to veterans outside of the VA.

The New Hampshire Health Information Organization, the state-wide health information exchange organization, has connected electronically with the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs.
