State gets grant for health information exchange

Posted:

DES MOINES (KWWL) -- The Iowa Department of Public Health has received more than 8 million dollars to implement a health information exchange.

The money comes as a grant from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.

The exchange would give doctors an electronic resource of a patient's health history.

It is slated to be up and running in Iowa in the next four years.
