MiHIN began in December 2010 to administer the technical and business operations of Michigan’s State Health Information Exchange Cooperative Agreement program. It was created by the Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology.
MiHIN is tasked with ensuring effective technology and data models are in place for the electronic exchange of health information. It is equally tasked with the creation of a shared governance model that provides the legal framework and policy infrastructure to safeguard and standardize the transfer of health information.
MiHIN’s goal is to streamline the flow of healthcare information, making it so patients are never far from their personal medical records.
