The State Bond Commission authorized $51 million in investments for information technology projects, including the state's health information exchange and Medicaid Management Information System.

Vendors may see increased procurement activity in Connecticut after the State Bond Commission approved funding for a slew of information technology projects spanning over 13 state agencies. Requests included $15 million for maintenance of the statewide health information exchange (HIE), and $25 million for an electronic medical record system for the University of Connecticut Health Center. The state is also investing in enhancements to the Medicaid Management Information System (MMIS) and the Immunization Information System Project and Vital Records Module Integration Project.
