Maryland's 46 acute care hospitals can now all share information electronically on patients admitted, discharged for transferred. The “encounter level” data can be passed along in real time via the Maryland Health Information Exchange , a statewide system of secure information sharing among hospitals, doctors' offices and health organizations, according to Lt. Gov. Anthony Brown, who announced the system recently. Some hospitals also are sharing lab and radiology reports, consult notes and other clinical data.

Anticipating a potentially widespread outbreak of swine flu this fall and winter, state officials announced Monday that all of Maryland's hospitals will now be linked in a computerized system to better track the disease. The officials said Maryland is the first state to enlist all its hospitals in the surveillance program, which is also designed as an early warning system for a bio-terror attack. Forty-six hospitals will share data on patients admitted, diagnoses and treatments. Also, drugstores in the state will be reporting sales of flu and cold medications.

I n the midst of a state budget crisis, Gov. Martin O'Malley's proposal to establish a system to collect individual-level student statistics from all sectors of education and the work force might not attract much attention. That would be unfortunate, because this initiative could revolutionize policymakers' ability to answer questions at the core of educational effectiveness. The Maryland Longitudinal Data System would make it easier to share information about students across agencies and institutions in the state for the purpose of examining student progress and outcomes over time - particularly those related to preparation for postsecondary education and employment.

Gov. Martin O'Malley will push to allow the Department of Juvenile Services to share information about children in its care with other social agencies - something now prohibited by state law. The governor's bill, which he plans to announce today, would lift the parental consent requirement that hampers even simple communication. For example, when a youth is arrested, Juvenile Services workers cannot make a phone call to social services workers to see whether the child is in foster care.

Spurred by a Nov. 24 derailment near Camden Yards, Maryland and CSX Transportation completed an agreement yesterday under which security officials will be given real-time access to information about hazardous cargoes moving through the state on freight trains. The agreement "will allow Maryland security and law enforcement officials to independently track the location of [CSX] trains and the contents of rail cars being handled by [CSX] trains across the state," said a railroad spokesman, Bob Sullivan.

WASHINGTON -- State and local officials are protesting efforts by the Department of Homeland Security to exclude them from a new unit designed to share information about possible terrorist threats to the country. The information-sharing group, created by a White House directive last year, is designed to send out bulletins to state and local officials when the federal government learns of terrorist activity at home and abroad. But Homeland Security officials are opposed to letting representatives of state and local government serve on the unit that would send out the information because they believe it would confuse the process.

LONDON --Amid growing concern that handovers of confidential banking data to U.S. counterterrorism investigators may violate European privacy laws, officials from around the Continent met yesterday in Brussels, Belgium, to consider legal options for probing the data transfers. Representatives from European privacy commissions considered complaints that sharing data on thousands of international wire transfers with U.S. law enforcement to help track terrorist financing could open the door to inappropriate uses of information that is protected by European laws.

The 9/11 Commission Report portrays the National Security Agency before the terrorist attacks as "almost obsessive" in protecting its intelligence-gathering methods, passive in following up on clues and excessively cautious about sharing communications intercepts with other agencies. While the eavesdropping and code-breaking agency at Fort Meade has avoided much of the harsh criticism directed at the CIA and FBI, references in the 567-page report suggest that the NSA bears some responsibility for the failure to prevent the Sept.

The man looked Middle Eastern, the callers said, and he was skulking around the American Legion Bridge on the Capital Beltway. Heavy traffic whizzed past, crossing the Potomac on a night when tensions were already high because of a big event on the Washington Mall. Maryland State Police arrived to question the man, and his story didn't add up. When three friends came to retrieve him, their stories seemed just as curious. The mystery deepened when one of their names turned up on a watch list for terrorism.
