Minnesota State-Certified Health Information Exchange Service Providers


A State-Certified Health Information Exchange (HIE) Service Provider is one of two types of organizations granted a Certificate of Authority to operate in Minnesota:

  • Health Information Organization (HIO): An entity that provides all electronic capabilities for the transmission of clinical transactions necessary for “meaningful use” of electronic health records in accordance with nationally recognized standards.

  • Health Data Intermediary (HDI): An entity that provides the infrastructure to connect computer systems or other electronic devices used by health care providers, laboratories, pharmacies, health plans, third-party administrators, or pharmacy benefit managers to facilitate the secure transmission of health information, including pharmaceutical electronic data intermediaries as defined in Minn. Stat. §62J.495, and Health Internet Service Providers (HISP) as defined by the Nationwide Health Information Network (NwHIN) Direct Project. Please note, to the extent that information is shared without the use of an intermediary it is outside the scope of Minnesota's oversight law.
  • Application Process

    Each HIE Service Provider must complete an initial certification process to have the authority to operate in Minnesota. All documentation submitted as part of the HIE Service Provider's application for certification will be posted on the Public Hearings page while it is being considered and on the Archive Application page after the process is complete.
