New Mexico Health Information Collaborative (NMHIC)
Presents its Fourth Annual HIE Users’ Conference


Description and highlights here....

Why You Should Attend

NMHIC presents its fourth annual conference to advance the cause of healthcare information exchange in New Mexico by helping participants create a shared vision, examine the current state of interoperability and factors hindering it, build consensus on standards, and formulate strategies for overcoming barriers to information exchange.

The New Mexico Health Information Collaborative (NMHIC), your statewide health information exchange, invites you to participate in inspiring presentations and thoughtful discussions about the benefits, challenges, and solutions for interoperability and exchange of health information in New Mexico and surrounding communities.


     “We have a challenge in that a patient’s health information may reside in many different electronic health records that cannot easily share their information. There is a solution! A health information exchange can provide the interoperability to merge that information for enhanced continuity and coordination of care. Now is the time to come learn and share your ideas about the critical importance of a state-wide health information exchange such as the New Mexico Health Information Collaborative. Be part of the solution!” ~ Dale C. Alverson, MD, FAAP, FATA, 2019 Conference Chair, Strategic Telehealth Consultant, UNM Center for Telehealth, and CMIO for NMHIC.
