When MHIN was founded, the healthcare tech industry had yet to develop information exchange solutions.
That first step set the stage for MHIN to become an integrated provider.
MHIN and Cerner realized they needed a solution to connect all other health IT suppliers.
Today, MHIN's approximately 2,000 provider members on various EHR systems share health information through MHIN.
Kricheff has helped MHIN stay at the forefront of interoperability.
As a mature HIE that successfully enables information exchange in its region, MHIN is now working with Cerner to help its members improve the health of their populations through access to information from many different sources.
Rather than run through the usual battery of tests, Kricheff consulted the patient's records via MHIN and discovered that those tests had already been done.
Knowing that our area is ahead of the curve with assets like Metronet and MHIN will allow us the leverage that can help attract high-caliber health care providers to our region," she says.
About Michiana Health Information Network (MHIN): MHIN is a health information exchange committed to improving care in the Michiana health community.
