Tiger Institute Health Alliance joins Mid-States Consortium

2/25/14 | February

The Tiger Institute Health Alliance recently joined the Mid-States Consortium of Health Information Organizations (MSC-HIO).  Together with the 16 founding health information organizations (HIOs), located throughout the Midwest and Rocky Mountain states, they will work to address data exchange challenges throughout the region.

The group will advocate for more robust forms of health information exchange (HIE), and for the unique needs of rural areas as they relate to health information technology and HIE. Additionally, they will work to resolve barriers that have prevented successful exchange across regional boundaries and state lines, such as differing state laws, patient consent policies and approaches to sharing protected health information.

For more information and a list of other participating organizations, read the press release from MSC-HIO here.
