The South Dakota Community Information Exchange (SD CIE) Team has been working diligently over the past year and has learned a lot about how the SD CIE should look. We are in the process of making some adjustments to our original project to best meet the needs of our partners and will be transitioning to a new software system this summer. Our team continues to refine system requirements to ensure we are delivering a product that will suit our state. We anticipate pilot communities (Rapid City and Mitchell) will be able to use the SD CIE sometime in the fall. After our pilot communities have had the opportunity to provide feedback, the Team will work on incorporating any necessary adjustments prior to bringing on more users. Onboarding of additional partners will likely take place in late winter/spring of 2024 and continue after that time as more partners are identified.
We continue to focus on our overall vision and intended benefits for the SD CIE. The Team will be working to expand our branding, communication, and recruitment efforts over the coming months in preparation for our SD CIE implementation. Additional high-level information regarding the SD CIE can be found here. For questions regarding the SD CIE, please contact the Helpline Center at email@example.com or complete this form.
We appreciate your patience, partnership, and continued support as we build what will certainly be a tremendous asset to our state’s healthcare, human and social service infrastructure.
General operating expenses will be covered by the South Dakota Department of Health through May 31, 2024. The need for participation or membership fees will be assessed annually with possible partner fees being applied/changed upon that annual review.
