"Digital health service" means the electronic transfer, exchange, or management of health related data for diagnosis, treatment, consultation, educational, public health or other related purposes.

The Utah Digital Health Service Commission's mission is to facilitate and promote adoption of the safe, secure, and efficient exchange of electronic health data for the purposes of implementation of health care transformation. The commission may advise on such issues as digital health service, patient privacy policy, technical interoperable policies, and others outlined by the statute. The development of digital health service systems is a means of reducing health costs, enhancing quality, increasing access, and improving public health services. [Proposed for discussion]
