Minnesota e-Health Advisory Committee

Also known as:
Minnesota e-Health Initiative Advisory Committee
Active dates:2009 -

The committee advises the Commissioner of Health on the following matters: 

1) assessment of the use of health information technology by the state, licensed health care providers and facilities, and local public health agencies;
2) recommendations for implementing a statewide interoperable health information infrastructure, to include estimates
of necessary resources, and for determining standards for administrative data exchange, clinical support programs, patient privacy
requirements, and maintenance of the security and confidentiality of individual patient data; and
3) other related issues as requested by the commissioner.


In 2009, the Legislature changed the Health Information Technology and Infrastructure Advisory Committee, which had been established in 2004, to the Minnesota e-Health Advisory Committee (see 2009 Minn. Laws Chap. 102 Sec. 1).

The Minnesota e-Health Advisory Committee was reviewed by the Legislative Commission on Planning and Fiscal Policy (LCPFP) in 2013 as part of their biennial duty required by Minn. Stat. 3.885 Subd. 11. The LCPFP's 2013 Recommendations called for keeping the committee.

In 2015, the committee's sunset date was extended from the year 2015 to the year 2021. In 2021, the Legislature further extended the committee's expiration date, now set for June 30, 2031 (see 2021 Minn. Laws 1st Sp. Sess. Chap. 7, Art. 3, Sec. 2).
