West Virginia E-Health Initiative Update

The West Virginia State Journal online edition provides an update of West Virginia's efforts to implement a statewide electronic medical records system.

The 2006 Legislature passed legislation creating the West Virginia Health Information Network responsible for guiding and overseeing West Virginia's efforts to coordinate and implement a private/public interoperable health information system. Governor Manchin has named Dr. Julian Bailes, chairman of WVU's Department of Neurosurgery as chairman of the Network.
