State Health Data Center of Excellence

Extending beyond the HIE


What is the Orion Health State Health Data Center of Excellence?

The SHDCoE is an opportunity for Orion Health to help all HIEs across the country navigate the transition to Health Data Utilities. Health Data Utilities will bring together the HIE clinical data and data from public health organizations, public and private payers and other state agencies including behavioural health and social care data. Bringing together health and social determinants of health (SDoH) data will enable health systems to take their performance to the next level – delivering better, more efficient care to those who need it.  

To support Health Data Utilities, Unified Health Data Models will be critical to generating value from this abundance of available data. These models create order in the data, preparing it for use in analysis, machine learning, sharing with downstream applications or at the clinical point of care. Health Data Utilities aggregate valuable combinations of health and health-adjacent data, but Unified Health Data Models make it actionable.

The future of the State Health Data Landscape

Over the last three decades, Orion Health has been perfecting our data platform technology in markets all over the world, including with our valued American partners. The SHDCoE is our opportunity to help the US realize the benefits of this ground-breaking work as many states share their ambition to move beyond their HIEs to become the Health Data Utilities of the future.
