Not just in healthcare technology, MiHIN also likes to bring people together, hosting events and conferences around the state. These events spotlight the changes and successes in healthcare, from the local level to the national.

Our managers also have many years of experiencing presenting and sharing their healthcare knowledge around the country. You can follow each on social media or via the MiHIN calendar.

Connecting Michigan for Health


Connecting Michigan for Health 2016 Networking Event

Connecting Michigan for Health is an event dedicated to advancing electronic health information sharing to enable healthcare delivery and payment transformation. Speakers and attendees convene from around Michigan and across the U.S. to share major industry directions, developments and opportunities to make healthcare transformation a reality.

MiHIN’s Connecting Michigan for Health conference is well known for bringing together some of the brightest minds from the health information sector. Over the course of three busy days, attendees gain insight about current issues facing statewide health information exchange efforts and how public and private organizations are working together to overcome data sharing barriers, reduce costs, and ultimately improve population health.

2016 Highlights

The theme of the 2016 was:

“Constructing the Future of Health Information Sharing:Emerging Patterns for Innovation, Health Reform and Quality Improvement.”

For this year’s event MiHIN placed special emphasis on leveraging progress in health information technology adoption, harnessing the growing list of pervasive data sharing opportunities, and identifying new efforts to incorporate the social determinants of health and clinical research to foster a learning health system.


Attendees at Connecting Michigan listen to some of the biggest leaders in Health IT

In 2016, MiHIN was pleased to have as speaker, Dr. Karen DeSalvo, National Coordinator for Health Information Technology of the Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology. Dr. DeSalvo is a physician who has focused her career toward improving access to affordable, high quality care for all people, especially vulnerable populations, and promoting overall health. She has done this through direct patient care, medical education, policy and administrative roles, research, and public service.

  • Other highlights include:
    • State- and nationally-recognized speakers sharing lessons learned and best practices on topics such as next generation care coordination, quality measurement, payment reform, interoperability standards, privacy, telemedicine and other topics of interest in healthcare transformation
    • Updates and awareness on national programs such as the State Innovation Model and other coming developments at state and national levels
    • Educational workshops focused on industry hot topics: one on use of the rapidly advancing Fast Healthcare Interoperability Resources (FHIR) standard and another on emerging approaches to quality improvement in ways that minimize workflow burdens for physicians, health plans and new payment organizations such as Accountable Care Organizations (ACOs)


Other Events

Healthcare is an ever-growing enterprise and because of that MiHIN can be found at other events and conferences around the country. MiHIN also has hosted other events as needed, continuing to focus on the security and growth of Michigan’s healthcare achievements.

One example is MiHIN’s lab days where a representative from MiHIN will visit a part of the state, introducing the healthcare community to the lab use cases and how they can be used to improve accuracy and results in their community. You can visit our calendar to see when the next lab day is occurring.
