Health Information Exchange in Illinois


The Illinois Office of Health Information Technology (OHIT) produces the State’s Health Information Exchange (HIE) Strategic and Operational Plan. In Illinois, each of the 16 designated Medical Trading Areas (MTAs) are tasked with creating a plan for local and statewide HIEs. As part of the stakeholder outreach requirement from the Office of the National Coordinator (ONC) for Health Information Technology, OHIT brought together MTA representatives to incorporate their efforts into the State’s plans.

CSG Helps to Get it Done

OHIT selected CSG to lead this important initiative. CSG assisted in planning, facilitating, and guiding OHIT’s effort to analyze all of the MTA efforts. OHIT and CSG organized and distilled the diverse inputs of the MTAs to support the creation of consistent and comprehensive HIE plans for Illinois, reflecting the broad stakeholder interest and ensuring compliance with ONC requirements.

CSG is developing an IAPD to provide funding to enable Medicaid providers access to electronic health records through the Illinois Health Information Exchange, ultimately improving patient care.

Illinois is striving to improve the quality of healthcare for its people. CSG is there to help achieve that goal.
