Update on Health Information Exchange

Board of Supervisors

Meeting Date: 7/18/2017

Preview

The Board will hear a request from the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) to receive an update on Health Information Exchange (HIE) and request to approve HIE participation agreements. In 2016, HHS initiated the development of an HIE for Marin’s safety-net. The HIE, Marin Health Gateway, will be a data-sharing and integration service that will enable the appropriate and secure exchange of health information among HHS staff, community clinics in Marin County, Marin General Hospital, and eventually other external partners to improve the coordination, quality, and cost-effectiveness of care delivered to Marin residents. There is no fiscal component associated with this request.

Review

The Board received the update on the Health Information Exchange and approved participation agreements.
