As part of MiHIN’s goal of establishing secure health information exchange throughout the state of Michigan, we are also working with Healtheway for the implementation of a nationwide system of health information exchange, known as the eHealth Exchange.
Healtheway is a non-profit, public-private partnership that operationally supports the eHealth Exchange (formerly referred to as the Nationwide Health Information Network Exchange).
The eHealth Exchange began as a nationwide health information network program in 2007. Since that time, a rapidly growing community of public and private organizations has been routinely sharing information in production. That community now represents thousands of providers and millions of patients.
The eHealth Exchange now operates as an independently sustainable public-private partnership.
- To improve the health and welfare of all Americans by supporting and enabling health information exchange that is trusted, that scales, and enhances quality of care and health outcomes by supporting comprehensive longitudinal health records.
- To expand trusted, secure and interoperable exchange of health information across the nation by fostering cross-industry collaboration and by providing shared governance and necessary shared service to public and private organizations who wish to interconnect as a network of networks.
