State Health Information Exchange (HIE) Cooperative Agreement Program (CAP)

On October 16, 2009, Wisconsin submitted its application for the State HIE CAP funding opportunity. Wisconsin’s project for statewide HIE is titled “Wisconsin Relay of Electronic Data for Health” or “WIRED for Health”. The goal of the WIRED for Health project was to build substantial health information exchange capacity statewide to support providers’ meaningful use of electronic health records and enable efficient, appropriate, and secure flow of information to optimize decisions for health. The approach was to plan, develop, and implement standards-based, secure electronic exchange of patient and health data.
