Calls Needed on SB 219 Terminating the OHIET trust – Bill to be heard Monday, 2/11/13

Filed under: Exposing Health Care Reform, Lobbying — oksafeinc @ 8:53 pm

OK-SAFE, Inc.  – We just learned that SB 219 by Sen. Dahm, terminating the OHIET trust, is to be heard on Monday, 2/11/13, in the Senate Health and Human Services committee, right after session is over. (Session will be short).  Sen. Brian Crain of Tulsa is the Chair.

The OHIET (Oklahoma Health Information Exchange Trust) has been busy establishing the technology infrastructure, i.e. electronic health records (EHRs)and certifying HIOs (Health Information Organizations), that enable the intrastate and interstate transmission of EHRs.  This is part of the technological infrastructure that makes “ObamaCare” work.

Could you please call/email this committee and ask them to vote YES on SB 219?
