The Board of Directors of the Idaho Health Data Exchange (IHDE), a Boise based health information exchange (HIE) organization have announced today the successful completion of connecting health care providers to coordinate patient care in support of the Statewide Healthcare Innovation Program (SHIP.) Using IHDE’s information technology, IHDE has completed a total of 166 electronic medical records connections to clinics, hospitals, and other healthcare providers to support SHIP. These connections support an information exchange repository that promotes the confidential exchange of vital health information for 237 health care organizations.
The Board of Directors would also like to announce the appointment of an interim Executive Director, Paul Brannan. Paul is a highly experienced executive leader, having recently served as a Project Manager for Brilgent, a Solutions Manager for Molina, and the Health Information Technology Manager for the Alabama Medicaid Agency.
As a 501(c) (6) nonprofit corporation, Idaho Health Data Exchange (IHDE) was established in 2008 to govern the development and implementation of a Health Information Exchange in Idaho. IHDE is governed by a Board of Directors that includes representation from the public and private healthcare payers.
IHDE will continue to advance our vision to be the trusted partner for health information exchange across our region in the coming years, focusing initially on continuing to connect healthcare providers throughout the state.
