Governance — Utah

The Utah Department of Health is responsible for administering the State HIE Program and is the agent for ARRA HIE funds. A collection of state government agencies and private partners (the Utah Department of Health, the Utah Digital Health Service Commission, the Utah Statewide Clinical Health Information Exchange, the Utah Department of Technology Services, and various community organizations), collectively known as the Utah HIT Governance Consortium and headed by the State HIT Coordinator, meets quarterly and serves an advisory role. The Department of Health will hold contractual oversight and accountability over the state designated HIE, the Utah Health Information Network (UHIN). UHIN will be responsible for operating the clinical HIE under the State HIE Program. Refer to pages 17-22 of the state Strategic Plan.
