BOISE — On Jan. 27, Idaho Health Data Exchange, Idaho’s statewide health information exchange, announced a new partnership with Leap Orbit to implement its consentric granular consent management toolkit built on HL7’s Fast Healthcare Interoperability Resources specification. The partnership will enable the exchange to expand its health information exchange network and services to behavioral health providers, facilitate sharing of mental health and substance use disorder information with patient approval, and improve coordination across the continuum of care.

The partnership reflects the broader trend in healthcare to treat the whole person by integrating behavioral health services with the physical healthcare infrastructure. With increased awareness, investments, and solutions to better address mental health and substance use disorder across the sector, the exchange’s partnership with Leap Orbit signifies a shift toward whole-person healthcare.
