CTHealthLink, DSS agreement seen as benefit to Medicaid patients

A new data-sharing agreement between Connecticut's Medicaid provider and a statewide health information network aims to help Medicare beneficiaries and healthcare providers more easily exchange health data from electronic medical records.

The deal between the Connecticut Department of Social Services (DSS), which administers HUSKY Health, the state's Medicaid program, and CTHealthLink, the physician-led statewide health information network, will allow physicians to access to patient information in a more timely, secure manner, allowing for improved care coordination, according to CTHealthLink.
