Connecticut could gain another HIE

Connecticut state officials are developing a health information exchange, which may compete with a project the Connecticut State Medical Society launched in June, according to CT News Junkie.

Planning for the government-led HIE is still in its early stages, but there has been "extensive stakeholder outreach," Allan Hackney, the state's health IT officer, told CT News Junkie.  Connecticut officials have not yet set a timeline, and are unsure how much the HIE would cost to implement.

The HIE would be Connecticut's second, after CSMS unveiled its subscription-based statewide HIE, called CTHealthLink, last month. CTHealthLink uses technology developed by physicians and includes patient health portals, data analytics tools and population health solutions.
