CHCS Participates in HealthInfoNet

May 3, 2017

CHCS is now participating in HealthInfoNet, Maine's statewide health information exchange.

HealthInfoNet combines information from separate health care sites to create a single electronic patient health record. This allows approved health care providers to quickly access the information they need to make better decisions about their patients' care, especially in an emergency.

HealthInfoNet is a Maine-based nonprofit. Only medical professionals involved in a patient's care have access to that patient's record in HealthInfoNet.

To learn more, please visit HealthInfoNet's website at

If you prefer not to have your information available to your healthcare providers using the health information exchange, you may opt-out online or by filling out and printing this form and mailing it to HealthInfoNet.

Some information related to mental health and HIV/AIDS treatment is only available in HealthInfoNet if you give permission or are in a medical emergency. Click here to read more about how you can give permission for some or all of your health care providers to see this information.
