Utah Health Department HIE-ONC Interoperability Project

The Utah Department of Health (UDOH), Utah Health Information Network (UHIN), and Intermountain Healthcare (Intermountain) will jointly implement this project to expand uses of the existing state designated, secure, interoperable clinical Health Information Exchange (cHIE) to improve the care coordination for newborn hearing screening and follow-up in the state of Utah. The first use case is to send newborn hearing clinical reports from Intermountain’s EHR through the cHIE’s Direct service to deliver consolidated clinical document architecture (CCDA) messages to the Early Hearing Detection and Intervention (EHDI) Program. The second use case is to send hearing screening results and histories from EHDI’s information system through UDOH's Child Health Advanced Records Management (CHARM) integration system and the interoperability Gateway to the cHIE Standard-based Message Broker to Intermountain and other providers.
