HIMSS24 Native American Health IT Symposium: 'Many nations, one record'

ORLANDO - For the first time, the Indian Health Service has a contract to install a new electronic health record connecting tribal communities across 37 states.

The initiative was a massive undertaking involving the National Indian Health Board, tribal groups, states and the federal government, with the help of HIMSS.

All of the stakeholders were needed because tribal governance is unique and involves more than connecting numerous hospitals across a health system.
