Assessment Reports

Minnesota e-Health Assessments

The Minnesota Department of Health (MDH), in partnership with the Minnesota e-Health Initiative, is responsible for assessing e-health in a variety of settings and sharing the findings. This page contains reports, factsheets, and briefs that describe the adoption and use of electronic health records (EHRs) and other health information technology (HIT) and health information exchange. EHRs and other HIT are essential to improve health care quality and accessibility, increase patient safety, reduce healthcare costs and improve public health.

    Minnesota e-Health Profile: Background and Methods

    The Minnesota e-Health Profile is a method to uniformly collect and routinely share the results of MN's e-health assessment activities statewide and based upon multiple sets of assessment information. The assessment information is used to:
    • Measure Minnesota's status on achieving state and national goals to accelerate adoption and use of electronic health records and other HIT to achieve interoperability of health information.
    • Identify gaps and barriers to enable effective strategies and efficient use of resources.
    • Help develop programs and inform decisions at the local, state and federal levels of government.
    • Support community collaboration efforts.
    Minnesota's approach to e-health assessment is a collaborative effort of multiple organizations, assessing multiple domains, which include both health settings and professions, from across the continuum of care. The findings from the statewide assessment are found in the Minnesota E-Health Profile.
