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) provides the ability to link patients with their care team members (providers who have declared an active care relationship with that patient). A provider may declare an “active care relationship” with a patient when the provider has seen the patient within the past two years and expects to see them again, or a patient is attributed to a practice/provider by a payer.

In June 2016, the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services and State Medicaid began to allow clinical quality measures to be sent electronically through the Michigan Health Information Network’s Clinical Quality Measure Reporting and Repository service (CQMRR – pronounced “skimmer”).

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.

Doctors across the country are turning to Direct Secure Messaging to securely exchange healthcare data over the Internet. This encrypted national message standard allows exchange of protected health information from provider to provider (replacing fax), and also between providers and patients.

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.

MiHIN’s Medical Information Direct Gateway, or MIDIGATE®, allows healthcare providers to use easy, low-cost Direct Secure Messaging – the simplest secure method for healthcare providers to electronically share protected health information.

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.

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.
