Providers, patients, and caregivers require information generated from many different systems to make informed health-related decisions. Access to this information can be difficult to obtain given the fragmented nature of the health information technology (HIT) infrastructure in Louisiana. System interoperability and data exchange are critical components in ensuring those involved in making health-related decisions have access to the right information, at the right time. To this end, Louisiana is interested in pursuing innovative strategies to further its HIT agenda. The Louisiana Department of Health seeks public input on the development of a HIT agenda that will result in increased interoperability and data exchange throughout Louisiana.
