In a pilot program to improve interoperability, three health information exchanges have started to share patient-centered data.
Three HIEs have established a long-term agreement to enhance health data interoperability, allowing a patient’s healthcare record to follow them across state lines.
The Indiana Health Information Exchange (IHIE), Michiana Health Information Network (MHIN), and East Tennessee Health Information Network (etHIN) are building a “Patient Centered Data Home (PCDH),” which aims to deliver data across state lines, and between disparate health systems to aid population health management, patient engagement, and patient safety.
“This is an exciting first step toward a much larger goal,” said John Kansky, president and CEO of IHIE. “At the completion of this pilot, we’ll be exchanging health information among seven HIEs and across five states.”Leave a reply →
