Minnesota e-Health

E-health is the adoption and effective use of Electronic Health Record (EHR) systems and other health information technology (HIT) to improve health care quality, increase patient safety, reduce health care costs, and enable individuals and communities to make the best possible health decisions. Across the nation, e-health is emerging as a powerful strategy to transform the health care system and improve the health of communities.

In this site you will find information on Minnesota e-Health Initiative, the Office of Health Information Technology (OHIT) at the Minnesota Department of Health, activities, data, resources, and opportunities to get connected to e-health in Minnesota.

Minnesota has made great strides in using health IT to improve patient experience, health care quality, patient safety, and public health. To mark the achievement, Governor Dayton proclaimed June 11, 2014, as Minnesota e-Health Day (PDF 793KB/1pg).
