Connecticut’s Department of Public Health seeks pilot sites to participate in the early development of the Connecticut Health Information Technology and Exchange (HITE-CT). The plan is to find healthcare provider organizations capable of developing early deployment sites to help refine the HITE-CT. The funding request seeks pilot participants from a variety of hospitals and from both large group practices small group practices.
Priority awards will be made to organizations that can offer real-world interoperability use-cases and to stakeholders that will build out the HIE. Also needed is expertise on testing and deploying new and emerging health information technologies including standards in use by HITE-CT.
The candidates for the pilot sites must be able to help the HITE-CT establish and test production connections, review operational workflow options and processes, review and refine security and privacy protections, provide feedback to HITE-CT, develop and test clinical use cases, and provide input to the Exchange on standard operating procedures.
