NMHIC’s Third Annual HIE Users’ Conference was a sold-out success on Friday, November 9, 2018! This year, a wide variety of healthcare leaders gathered in two locations. The conference was graciously hosted by CHRISTUS St. Vincent Health System in Santa Fe and Memorial Medical Center in Las Cruces. The two live sites came together via the Internet, and our keynote speaker, Elaine Fontaine, addressed both groups from the Rhode Island Quality Institute. Other guest presenters included speakers from the New Mexico Department of Health and The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid (CMS). Handouts for our formal lecture segments can be found at this link:
