September 9, 2014, Burlington Free Press - A crew of volunteer actors demonstrated to an audience Tuesday how personnel in a hospital emergency department could learn important information about a patient's past care and current medications by tapping a statewide database. The skit was a way to introduce VITL Access, a secure health provider portal to a database into which doctors and hospitals across the state have fed patients' medical information. Vermont Information Technology Leaders began rolling out VITL Access last month, and officials intend to have it operational throughout the state in 2015, John Evans, VITL president and CEO, told an audience of 300 at the organization's annual summit.
