March 30 '07: The nation's first state health information network soon will go online in Delaware, Government Health IT reported. The network will link the state's health and hospital officials together so that they can share data, toxicology results, X-rays, and other health-related information.
The information exchanged also will be delivered in a standard format so to help with efficiency, officials said. "At first, the network will deliver lab test results, radiology reports, and admission, discharge and transfer reports ... [to the] three hospital systems, five doctors' practices with 30 offices and 70 physicians among them, and LabCorp."All that is required to access the network, Government Health IT reported, is a Windows operating system and a high-speed Internet connection.

Continual funding for the network will be subsidized by federal, state and private sector money and it will be free to those who wish to use it.
