Idaho Health Data Exchange Files for Bankruptcy

Boise State Public Radio has reported that the Idaho Health Data Exchange (IHDE) filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy on August 12, 2022. IHDE is a not-for-profit organization that was launched in 2009 to provide access to patient records for 194 different participating treatment providers.

According to the report, IHDE “operates a massive database of Idaho patient medical records.” IHDE is defending itself in litigation from creditors and the filing is designed to allow it to operate while it works through the litigation and pays its creditors. There is no mention in the report about what could happen to the database if IHDE goes out of business. However, IHDE has said that the records belong to the patients and providers. If IHDE goes out of business, determining what to do with the database would be a monumental task.
