As part of their ongoing Tribal Consultation and Urban Confer concerning Indian Health Service (IHS) Health Information Technology (HIT) Modernization, IHS invites you to join a virtual Tribal Consultation and Urban Confer session on Thursday, March 10, 2022.

During this event the IHS will provide a status update on the acquisition process for solutions to replace the Resource and Patient Management System. We will also discuss opportunities for Tribes and Urban Indian Organizations to participate in HIT Modernization governance by contributing expertise to focus groups whose members will inform key aspects of the overall modernization approach.

The HIT Modernization Program will convene focus groups comprised of IHS, Tribal, and Urban Indian Organization subject matter experts with detailed knowledge of the impacts and benefits that HIT Modernization will bring to Indian Country. Participants in the focus groups will provide individual input on best approaches for ensuring the most effective implementation, interoperability, and data management in support of improved health care services and outcomes. The duration for each focus group is expected to be 12-18 months, with meetings approximately every 2 months.

Additional information on these focus groups and the process for submitting names of subject matter experts for participation will be presented during the Tribal Consultation and Urban Confer session. Attendees must register for the session in advance through the link below. After registering, attendees will receive an e-mail with a link to the web conference and audio call-in numbers.
