As reported back in February, today the Missouri Office of Health Information Technology (MO-HITECH) released its Request for Information (RFI) regarding component functions and general pricing ranges for the creation of their Statewide Health Information Exchange (HIE). MO-HITECH will host a webinar on March 31 from 11 AM to 12:30 PM Central Time. Intent to Respond is due by April 2 and Responses are due by 8 AM on April 16, 2010. GovWin has been tracking the HIE under Opportunity ID #60207.

Broad objectives for MO-HITECH include what most HIEs are looking to accomplish: satisfy meaningful use criteria; create a robust clinical exchange of information to improve patient care; and ensure connectivity with the National Health Information Network (NHIN) gateway. They are looking for a solution that encompasses

  • Laboratory ordering and results delivery
  • Electronic prescribing (e-prescribing)
  • Clinical information exchange
  • Eligibility and authorization unification
  • Web viewers for providers without Electronic Health Records (EHRs)
Missouri is also interested in reaching beyond basics and finding out more information on radiological image exchange and population-based health management and reporting. Missouri's Department of Social Services was awarded a $13.8 million HIE grant back on February 12. More information on MO-HITECH and their workgroups can be found here.
