HITECH’s State Health Information Exchange (HIE) Cooperative Agreement Program

Early 2010 marked the first announcement of awards to 40 states and State Designated Entities (SDE) under HITECH’s State Health Information Exchange Cooperative Agreement Program. This Program funds states’ efforts to rapidly build capacity for exchanging health information across the health care system both within and across states. Awardees are responsible for increasing connectivity and enabling patient-centric information flow to improve the quality and efficiency of care. Key to this is the continual evolution and advancement of necessary governance, policies, technical services, business operations, and financing mechanisms for HIE over each State and SDE’s four-year performance period. This Program is building on existing efforts to advance regional and state level health information exchange while moving toward nationwide interoperability.

Over the next several weeks the remaining cooperative agreements will be awarded to approved applicants; these awardees will join the 40 awardees announced today in advancing mechanisms for health information sharing in their states and across the country.
