MiHIN, openAirWare Team Up to Create New Ways to Provide Direct Secure Messaging for Healthcare Partners

LANSING, Mich., Oct. 8, 2018 ― Michigan Health Information Network Shared Services (MiHIN) has enhanced the secure transmission of healthcare communications using Direct Secure Messaging with openAirWare LLC.

In early 2018, MiHIN became a fully accredited health information service provider through openAirWare and now has the ability for providers and patients to exchange protected health information through MiHIN’s service, Diretto.

Diretto enables patients, providers, specialists, health plans, pharmacists, hospital, and others to securely send and receive protected health information. It also satisfies Meaningful Use criteria and allows information to be exchanged within the user’s region, state or nationally.

‘We were looking for a partner to implement strict standards, but also be able to manage the solution,” said Marty Woodruff, MiHIN associate executive director. “openAirWare exceeded our expectations in contributing to an encrypted national standard that ensures highly sensitive health information can be securely sent and received from provider to provider, provider to patient, or patient to provider.”

MiHIN chose to partner with openAirWare in 2016, based on their proven expertise in the Continuity of Care Document and Clinical Document Architectures.

“openAirWare is proud to partner with MiHIN and to contribute to the development of this solution,” said Mark Brown, openAirWare CEO. “They selected us for our high level of excellence and unparalleled expertise in connectivity and interoperability solutions. Together, we will set the bar for improved communications.”
