Iowa e-Health, the state's designed entity to build a statewide health information exchange, has contracted with integration and HIE vendors Hielix and MEDNET to create a financial sustainability plan.

The vendors have not been selected to build and operate the core HIE platform, a project for which Iowa e-Health has issued a request for proposals. Rather, Tampa-based Hielix and Minneapolis-based MEDNET are being tapped for their institutional knowledge. The vendors are partners that have assisted other state HIE efforts in technical and consultative roles.

More information on Iowa e-Health is available at idph.state.ia.us/ehealth/.
