The Wyoming Department of Health (WDH, Cheyenne, Wyo.) has signed a $4 million, three-year contract with Dallas-based Affiliated Computer Services, Inc. (ACS) to provide the tools needed for an EHR system and Health Information Exchange (HIE).

As a part of the state’s Total Health Record program designed to create a single Web portal for patient data, ACS will coordinate internal and external systems to establish EHR interoperability, it says. ACS will also link systems across within WDH, develop Web applications and collect data that can interoperate with Medicaid management information, immunization, vital records, laboratories, and health management systems.
