Dr. Joe Davison of Wichita, left, is a member of the Kansas Health Information Exchange board of directors. The board is scheduled to discuss Wednesday whether it will dissolve itself as an independent regulatory body overseeing digital health information exchange in Kansas. Davison — the board's chairman — is shown in this KHI News Service file photo demonstrating some of the technology commonly used as part of an electronic health record system. The digital exchange of patient health records just began in Kansas and board members have before them a proposal that would shift KHIE's duties to the Kansas Department of Health and Environment.
