Summary of Care

Statewide coordination in sharing patient information helps minimize adverse drug events (ADEs) and maximize cost benefits. Additionally, this use case leverages the Michigan Health Information Network Shared Services (MiHIN) Active Care Relationship Service® (ACRS®) for notifying appropriate providers of changes to a patient’s medication status.
The purpose of the Summary of Care use case is to help healthcare providers share a summary of a patient’s treatment information at the time of discharge with other care team members and organizations. This could include physicians, practices, pharmacies, hospitals, and transitional facilities such as outpatient and skilled nursing facilities.
