CHeQ Emerging HIEs
Emerging HIE Forums
In an effort to bring together a team of dedicated thought leaders working to improve care coordination through the safe and secure transmission of electronic health information, CHeQ brings together those from across the state actively involved in Emerging HIE projects.
In these forums, participants are able to actively garner information and share expertise and experiences. Focusing on topics relevant to governance structure, trust development, and responsibility sharing, participants leave the forum better equipped to further their work.
Previous meeting notes and presentations, as well as information about upcoming forums, are available below:
The first Emerging HIE Forum was held June 25, 2013. Over 20 participants, representing eight organizations from around the state were able to share knowledge and insight in a community of practice discussion. The Forum focused on lessons learned from the CHeQ- and CHHS-sponsored HIE Planning Grant Program and on the new CHeQ-sponsored Rural HIE Incentive Program.
The second Forum, held August 27, 2013 focused on the non-technology aspects of developing an emerging HIE effort, with presentations from industry leaders on shared responsibilities between HIOs and vendors, essential contractual and policy documents for the HIO development process, and the developing California trust framework.
Focus on 2014
Our third forum, scheduled for November 14th, 2013 from 9-12pm, will be an interactive meeting discussing your plans and goals for 2014, the challenges and hurdles you may encounter in pursuit of your goals, and resources to overcome those challenges.
Please RSVP to Rebecca Kriz at email@example.com for more information about the Forum and to reserve a spot. We ask that you RSVP by October 31, 2013. Limited funding is available to support travel if needed. Travel requests should be made by October 28, 2013.
