Health Information Exchange

Health Information Exchange (HIE) allows hospitals, doctors, pharmacists and other health care professionals to electronically share a patient’s medical information, with the goal of improving the health and welfare of all Americans. HIE will enable health care professionals to easily collect all relevant information about a patient and his or her medical issues; reduce the need for patients to transport their medical histories, lab results, images and lists of prescriptions between health professionals; and simplify public health reporting.

Contact the Michigan Health Information Network Shared Services (MiHIN) for more information on Health Information Exchanges: help@mihin.org.
