Health Information exchanges (HIEs) around the state that are applying for federal grant funds are seeking commitments from local physicians. The number of physicians commitments received affects the amount of funding for which the HIE is eligible and becomes part of the funding formula. For each physician committed to a particular HIE, that HIE gets $300. Physicians can participate in more than one HIE, but for funding purposes, physicians can only sign commitment to one.
