Colorado Picks its HIE Partner

The Colorado Regional Health Information Organization has selected Medicity Inc. as the core platform vendor for the state's health information exchange.

The RHIO will start implementation in the San Luis Valley region, which spans 8,000 square miles in southern Colorado and includes the towns of Del Norte, Monte Vista, Alamosa and San Luis. A second phase is expected this summer with letters of intent received from Boulder, Denver, Colorado Springs and the northern Colorado region.

The goal is for the statewide HIE to connect more than 85% of providers and hospitals within five years. The Quality Health Network, a regional HIE currently operating out of Grand Junction and serving western Colorado, will link to the statewide HIE. Quality Health Network uses a core HIE platform from Axolotl Corp., San Jose, Calif.
