Minnesota Health Information Exchange Service Provider Public Hearings

The Minnesota Health Information Exchange (HIE) Oversight law passed in 2010 (Minn. Stat. sections 62J.498-4982) requires entities wishing to serve as HIE Service Providers in Minnesota to apply for a Certificate of Authority and present the application at a public hearing and respond to public comment and questions. 

This page provides access to information and documents related to Minnesota Public Hearings being held to review applications for Certificates of Authority to operate as HIE Service Providers, which include Health Information Organizations (HIO) and Health Data Intermediaries (HDI).

Visit the Minnesota State-Certified Health Information Exchange Service Providers page for information on current State-Certified entities and recertification documents.
