MAeHC launches subsidiary

Today we're announcing the launching of MAeHC Professional Services Corporation (PSC), a for-profit, wholly owned subsidiary of the Massachusetts eHealth Collaborative. Our press release is here. PSC will provide a broad range of fee-based consulting services related to EHR deployment, health information exchange, and quality data warehousing. PSC will provide these services—including strategic planning, project management, and project execution services—to both nonprofit and for-profit clients throughout the United States who are involved in a variety of health IT activities.

Today's Boston Globe gave our launch some nice coverage (New eHealth subsidiary will fund expansion), and we greatly appreciate their interest in the story. One thing from the story that I'd like to clear up is that it suggests that we don't work with so-called "web-based" applications such as athenahealth. In fact, both MAeHC and MAeHC-PSC are vendor- and platform-agnostic, and we ourselves have deployed both web-based and client/server-based applications. And, of course, we're happy to work with athenahealth.....
