North Country Hospital in Newport is gearing up for big changes. This small hospital is the first in the state to go online with a new health information exchange. It's a system that allows providers across the state -- and eventually across the country -- to share patient health records electronically. "It really facilitates making good  decisions.  To make good decisions you need to have good patient information -- frequently which is not at our fingertips," said North Country Hospital's Dr. Ron Holland.
