Minnesota e-Health Initiative

2019-2020 Workgroups

The Consumer Engagement Workgroup will develop learning opportunities and collective actions to support care providers with e-health tools to support patient/client engagement and improved health outcomes.

The purpose of the e-Prescribing Workgroup is to advance comprehensive implementation of e-prescribing standard transactions and procedures by Minnesota’s stakeholders. The work will address two key issues:

  • Increasing adoption of electronic prescribing of controlled substance by Minnesota’s prescribers
  • Document and describe barriers to full implementation of the NCPDP SCRIPT standard and e-prescribing processes, and convene stakeholders (prescribers, dispensers, and payers/pharmacy benefit managers) to develop consensus on implementation

The Health Information Exchange (HIE) Workgroup is not anticipated to be re-chartered for the 2019-2020 work year.

The workgroup was on break for 2018-2019 while the Minnesota e-Health HIE Task Force was completing its work. The deliverables may be found on the Minnesota e-Health HIE Task Force webpage.

The purpose of the Privacy and Security Workgroup is to:

  • Provide feedback on privacy and legal components of HIE in Minnesota
  • Recommend to providers and health care stakeholders activities that support the implementation of sound privacy and security practices for health information
  • Ensure that the needs of consumers, providers, and health care stakeholders are fully considered in the development of educational resources and tools
