Working Towards Collaborative Healthcare Solutions for Montana

Montana’s healthcare network of providers and patients lacks a comprehensive technology platform. Patients experience this firsthand when their healthcare provider is unable to access health information from a referring provider a few blocks down the street.

Formed in 2018, Big Sky Care Connect is a nonprofit created to respond to the need for a state-wide coordinated health information exchange (HIE) and related services to enhance clinical care in communities throughout Montana.  

Big Sky Care Connect serves to facilitate timely and secure access by health care providers to clinical information between various organizations, and engage in other activities to improve and promote the public health and quality of health care in Montana in a cost-effective manner.

Big Sky Care Connect is governed by a board of directors made up of physicians and health care executives from around the state. For more information about Big Sky Care Connect, email information@mtbscc.org or contact Jean Branscum, organizing board secretary at 406-443-4000.
