Wyoming Health Information Exchange
Over the past two years, the Wyoming Department of Health (WDH) has completed a thorough assessment of the Health Information Technology (HIT) and Health Information Exchange (HIE) environment in the State and the options to develop a Wyoming HIE. The information gathered indicated a need for stakeholder collaboration and transparency in any development of a statewide HIE. With this understanding, WDH has set to actively work in partnership with stakeholders early on for this current Wyoming HIE initiative. Stakeholder engagement was identified as critical to the HIE project becoming widely used by the provider community and improving care for Wyoming residents. The Steering Committees serves as the mode in which key stakeholders across the state and healthcare professions to engage and provide insight on the development of the Wyoming HIE.

WYFI Regional Meetings Informational Sessions
13 regional meetings and 10 one-on-one meetings were held across Wyoming the week of October 23 – 27, 2017. A total of 95 individuals attended the group and/or individual meetings. The information discussed during the meetings included the background of WYFI, review of specific needs identified during the 2016 Health Partner Needs Assessment (HPNA), the technical solution for WYFI as well as how a variety of clinical use cases will be integrated into the solution. The full presentation can be found here.
These sessions allowed ample time for questions to be answered regarding the development and implementation of WYFI and provided an opportunity for the WYFI team to better understand stakeholders’ perspectives as well as appreciate current challenges for the exchange of electronic data throughout the state.
The overall goal of the regional meetings was to engage healthcare professionals across the state of Wyoming on WYFI as well as educate individuals on Health Information Exchange (HIE) and the solutions offered by WYFI. Direct involvement of WYFI users in implementation discussions and decisions will enable WDH to better identify and address their needs and concerns. The findings from the regional meetings will help inform WDH, the Steering Group and Subcommittees as the WYFI team moves forward in planning and implementation of Wyoming’s HIE. Please refer back to the WYFI website for a full summary report of the regional meetings.
