N.M. Stat. Ann. §§ 24-14A-3 et seq. – New MexicoStatus: Enacted
The “Health Information System Act,” creates a health information system for the purpose of facilitating the collection, analysis and dissemination of health information to assist in health planning, policymaking, and to assist consumer in making informed healthcare decisions. Specifically, administrators must “collect health data sufficient for consumers to be able to evaluate health care services, plans, providers and payers and to make informed decisions regarding quality, cost and outcome of care across the spectrum of health care services, providers and payers.” The system has been implemented within the Department of Health as the New Mexico Indicator-Based Information System (NM-IBIS).
