    The Baltimore Business Journal reported yesterday that Maryland's health information exchange (not to be confused with the health insurance exchange, which is completely different and several years away). This isn't the first statewide HIE in the country--Delaware set up its Delaware Health Information Network a few years ago--but it's one of the first, if the not the very first, to launch in the wake of the HITECH Act. As mentioned a bit in this thread, every state right now is working to build a statewide HIE infrastructure. Kudos to Maryland on this step.
