Services

The Michigan Health Information Network Shared Services (MiHIN) offers a comprehensive set of services that work together or as standalone tools to enable health information sharing. Click on the picture or title for any item below to learn more about the service.

The Active Care Relationship Service® (ACRS®) solution identifies providers who are actively caring for a patient. ACRS® promotes better-coordinated transitions of care by enabling physicians and care management teams to receive notifications when there are updates in a patient’s status.

Clinical quality measures assess the quality of care provided to patients. Quality measures establish “thresholds” (standards of care) that define high-quality vs. low-quality care. Most measures have performance targets that physicians are required to achieve.

Improving health information exchange for Michigan means more than just working with organizations inside the state. Providing comprehensive support for Michigan residents means supporting them when they are out-of-state as well. MiHIN’s Common Gateway Service connects Michigan to the national eHealth Exchange, enabling Michigan healthcare providers to share information beyond Michigan’s borders.

One of the most important goals of sharing patient information electronically is helping doctors build complete, current pictures of their patients using health information from multiple sources. These sources can include other doctors or specialists, hospitals, clinics, pharmacies, skilled nursing facilities and any other healthcare setting where care is provided.

Over the last decade, healthcare providers began to turn to Direct Secure Messaging and other secure communication options to share health information. Diretto™ is the answer to securely and accurately share patient information across our statewide healthcare community.

New models of care have necessitated the need for health professionals to be able to send, receive, find, and use health information electronically and securely. The Health Directory alleviates some of this data work, by collecting information on physicians and patients in a fast and easily-accessible database.

How many systems do you use to coordinate care for your patients? MIDIGATE enables effective coordination of care that is affordable, configurable and scalable to your organization. Use MIDIGATE to streamline workflows, improve efficiency in care coordination, and improve data quality – an all-in-one solution!

In today’s healthcare environment there is a critical shortage of good test data. This shortage is so severe that organizations create their own test data or worse, test with live data – someone’s protected health information – creating security and privacy risks.

Prove My ID is a web application that lets you remotely identify yourself and create a digital proven identity which you may use to set up a Direct Secure Messaging account. This national encrypted message standard allows patients and providers to exchange protected health information.

MiHIN has developed several simulators to aid organizations when joining the health information network and when developing and testing new use cases. These simulators imitate the behaviors of certain participants in the statewide network such as health systems, hospitals, health information exchanges, or federal agencies.

Currently the task of electronically accessing health information often means logging into multiple, disconnected networks, portals, or databases. This means that users (physicians, nurses, pharmacists, etc.) must maintain and remember unique login IDs and passwords for each data source they use.

Michigan’s Statewide Consumer Directory is a centralized tool that gives patients visibility and a voice regarding how their healthcare information is exchanged. The directory connects easily to mobile apps, patient portals and personal health records that patients already use, offering valuable features to empower patients to manage their own care.

When lab results are presented in a timely manner and is a usable, actionable format, providers are better equipped to deliver efficient and effective patient care.

Transitions of care, such as being discharged from a hospital or other care facility, are high-risk periods for adverse events and poor clinical outcomes. MiHIN’s Transitions of Care service helps healthcare providers communicate more easily during these critical periods, creating opportunities for timely followup with patients to optimize outcomes.
