The US-based West Virginia Health Information Network (WVHIN) is planning to seek proposals from IT firms to establish a state-wide health information exchange (HIE).

The HIE will offer clinical messaging, initially focusing on lab, radiology and hospital reports, and provide authorised physicians with access to important patient data from different locations, govhealthit.com reports.

The programme will also provide features such as e-prescribing, cross-referrals between physicians and an inquiry capability, WVHIN said.

WVHIN is planning to release its request for proposals by early November, with vendor bids expected by the end of the month, the news agency reports.
