New Portal Partner States!

We’re very pleased to begin to have a presence in the eastern part of the United States, and to be adding services information for the intermountain west.
Rhode Island
We’re delighted to announce that Rhode Island is an official partner state with many RI community and non-profit service providers in the RI Medical Home Portal services directory.  They are also in the process of adding RI pediatric subspecialty provider data, which should be live in the next week.
Nevada isn’t far behind - community service provider data from Nevada 2-1-1 will be available in the NV Medical Home Portal service directory in October.
