HELENA, MT, October 1, 2020 — Today, Big Sky Care Connect (BSCC) and Gov. Steve Bullock discussed the HIE’s roll-out plan in the upcoming months.
Montana was one of just three states without a state-designated HIE. This situation changed in 2020 when BSCC decided to take part in expanding interoperability in Montana to serve the state’s approximately one million residents by increasing the exchange of health information through a variety of secure electronic means.
“A statewide health information exchange brings providers together to collectively use common sense and secure technology to improve health outcomes for Montanans,” said Gov. Bullock.
InterSystems has assisted in the stand up of BSCC since the beginning, designing, developing, and implementing a customized HIE platform with a suite of supporting applications to enable novel technology and be compatible with current HIE standards.
