Health Information exchanges in Michigan

Featured August 17, 2014 | crainsdetroit.com | Jay Greene, Crain’s Detroit Business A health information exchange is a nonprofit organization intended to help hospitals and physicians exchange patient information in a secure electronic format. Data include electronic messages, laboratory, pharmacy and imaging data along with documentation of care and admission discharge and transfer information, or ADT. Michigan's foray into health information exchanges began in 2006 under Gov. Jennifer Granholm and with several million dollars of federal funding. Initially, nine health information exchanges were created in Michigan to allow competing medical providers to share patient information instantly in a secure format and to encourage the exchanges to experiment and grow within their regions. Over time, some exchanges closed and others have merged, leaving six operational HIEs in Michigan. Last month, two of the...

Electronic data system points to a future of managing health, reducing costs, improving quality

Featured August 17, 2014 | crainsdetroit.com | Jay Greene, Crain’s Detroit Business The health care and business communities in Michigan may be on the cusp of realizing the ultimate benefit of the free flow of online medical electronic data: Managing the health of patients as they move through the health care delivery system across the state and multiple care providers. As Michigan's six health information exchanges continue to tailor their individual business plans for customers — typically, hospitals, physicians and health insurers — HIEs are moving closer to using clinical patient data to analyze population health, improve care coordination and more effectively identify patient risks for readmissions. Meeting these goals is important to providers because they ultimately can help reduce individual premiums and cut employer health benefit costs, said Tim...

MiHIN Director reviews HIE security protocols, agreements

Featured July 8, 2014 | healthitsecurity.com | Patrick Ouellette, HealthITSecurity.com Seeing as how Michigan Health Information Network (MiHIN) considers itself a network of networks and doesn’t really see itself a traditional health information exchange (HIE), it follows that it would take data security quite seriously. MiHIN Executive Director Tim Pletcher told HealthITSecurity.com that MiHIN is the single point of entry into the state of Michigan for all the data that goes into the HIEs for meaningful use, as organizations give their data to MiHIN and it gives the data to the state. Pletcher explains in this one-on-one how MiHIN views secure data exchange in the context of having multiple levels of connectivity. How does MiHIN connect with other HIEs? The first level is legal connectivity, which poses questions such as who’s connecting, what are they going to...
