OAKLAND, Calif., May 8, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- In a little more than two years, the California Health Information Partnership and Services Organization (CalHIPSO) has successfully developed the infrastructure needed to help thousands of providers throughout California implement Electronic Health Records (EHRs), considered vital for improving the quality and efficient delivery of healthcare.

"Our first two years have been extremely challenging and successful," says CalHIPSO CEO Speranza Avram. "We're well on our way to helping thousands of providers in California transition their practices from paper-based medical records to electronic systems and in the process, improving both the efficiency and quality of primary care."

Major milestones include:
