MAeHC is Dissolving and Distributing Remaining Cash Reserves
The Massachusetts eHealth Collaborative (MAeHC), which has led or been involved in many state and national health information technology initiatives over the past 15 years, is ending its operations this year. While it has sold or transferred many of its assets, MAeHC is initiating a request for proposal (RFP) process to help it distribute some of its cash reserves.
“As those of us at MAeHC close our final chapter, we are still looking to the future by ensuring that other organizations can continue to innovate on the unique foundation of HIT assets our organization has built over the years,” said Christopher Matarazzo MAeHC president and CEO.
To be considered for the funding, Massachusetts-based Section 501(c)(3) charitable organizations will need to demonstrate the ability to use information technology innovations to take healthcare to the next level. MAeHC anticipates awarding several grants up to $250,000 each to selected organizations. Qualifying organizations may apply independently or in collaboration. Here is the grant application form.
MAeHC has sold certain assets to Arcadia, a Burlington, Mass-based population health management organization. The majority of the MAeHC workforce transitioned to Arcadia. MAeHC has also assigned the New England Healthcare Exchange Network, Inc. (NEHEN) contract to the Massachusetts Health Data Consortium (MHDC).
