New Mexico's NM-IBIS Website was implemented using software developed by the Utah Department of Health. The software was downloaded from Utah's IBIS Community of Practice website and software repository.
New Mexico Department of HealthAs with any information system implementation, high-level organizational support is crucial. Executive managers in New Mexico Department of Health (NMDOH) have provided not only support but have succeeded in creating an organizational culture in which data are used for evidence-based decision-making.

The current health indicator content has been produced and maintained by NMDOH staff throughout the Department. Data Stewards are responsible for providing the datasets that are used in the query system.
Various NM-IBIS users' groups have provided guidance on NM-IBIS content and priorities over the years.
Garth Braithwaite, Software Technology Group (STG), and Zhiwei Liu, M.S., continue to provide innovative solutions. They have been patient, responsive, and creative and deserve much credit for the IBIS product used in New Mexico and other IBIS states.
