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.

Over time, some exchanges closed and others have merged, leaving six operational HIEs in Michigan. Last month, two of the...
