MiHIN and Livonia Schools piloting new program to make accessing immunization records easier

LANSING, Mich., March 5, 2019 — Michigan Health Information Network Shared Services (MiHIN) and Livonia Public Schools along with Wayne RESA are partnering to pilot a new online program to help parents and legal guardians quickly request and receive immunization records from the state.

For schools, requesting these records and reminding parents to comply is often time consuming. MiHIN’s Consumer...

Patient Matching Transformed at Michigan HIN with Master Patient Index & Common Key

This case study looks at a health information network that has gone from zero uniquely identified patients to 7.6 million – and nearly all major health systems statewide are set to participate in its Common Key Service.
