UHIN and Comagine Health Announce Affiliation

Comagine Health, a national nonprofit health care consulting firm, and the Utah Health Information Network (UHIN), a leading health care information technology organization, recently announced they are affiliating. The two organizations have a long history of working together over the last decade on federal and state initiatives to advance electronic health record (EHR) adoption, cost transparency reporting, capacity and functionality of all-payer claims databases (APCDs) and interoperability and surveillance activities. Through this new affiliation, they will be able to become even more powerful drivers for health care improvement.

An affiliation between the two organizations allows UHIN and Comagine Health to each leverage their deep expertise and success in different areas. The affiliation will help both organizations better meet their missions, respond to a changing economic landscape and create greater value for their respective customers.

Comagine Health is a national leader in health care consulting for federal, state and local government agencies as well as privately funded groups. The company is widely recognized for its expertise in quality improvement, care management, data solutions and research and evaluation. Additionally, Comagine Health has a long-standing history with the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) serving as the Quality Innovation Network-Quality Improvement Organization (QIN-QIO) and is preparing to bid as a prime contractor for the 13th statement of work to serve as the QIN-QIO in Region 6, covering 14 states from the Pacific Northwest through the Midwest.

MARCH 2024

“Our life is March weather, savage and serene in one hour” (Ralph Waldo Emerson)

Such was life in the healthcare information technology sector this month. We collectively faced daunting cyber circumstances and peered into an optimistic future filled with the possibilities of A.I., resilient and redundant networks, and healthcare interoperability for all.

Cyberattacks affect all of us. We're here to help.

UHIN is dedicated to maintaining interoperability for all payers, providers and partners. When an event as large as the Change Healthcare cyber incident impacts our community, we know we need to serve as a bridge to stable ground. Read more about the actions we’re taking to support our community at this time.

We’re actively supporting Providers by expediting enrollment with Payers to get claims flowing again. Providers can leverage our solutions to create and send professional and institutional claims, submit via SFTP, file tool or online hand-entry, check claims status, manage denials and rejections, and search, view, and download payment information.

We can connect with health plans, so they may receive claims from providers through a direct connection to our clearinghouse. Empower your provider network by elevating your collaboration efforts, securely sharing information and data, and providing better affordable care for your members.​​​​​​
