Minnesota e-Health Vision

The Minnesota e-Health Initiative will accelerate the adoption and use of Health Information Technology to improve healthcare quality, increase patient safety, reduce healthcare costs and enable individuals and communities to make the best possible health decisions.

We will do this by:

  • Connecting healthcare providers – clinicians and facilities – to assure continuity of care for every patient
  • Using national standards to guide electronic data interoperability, quality measurement and community health improvement and reduce the risk of investment
  • Empowering consumers to understand and access personalized health information to facilitate active management of their health
  • Improving public health, primary prevention and enabling community preparedness
  • Informing health research and policy development
  • Leveraging existing information systems and incrementally adding improved ones
  • Increasing adoption of health information technology and levels of informatics skills, knowledge and competencies
  • Safeguarding privacy and confidentiality of information
  • Maintaining outcomes that focus on the patient/person
  • Contributing to the development of federal standards efforts
