As part of this webinar you will learn how GAHIN and HealtHIE Georgia benefits your Hospitals and providers through sharing data. SunLink Health Systems Technology will give you further understanding of how that underlying data can be used to gain insight into trends in your communities’ health, used to supply information to other vendor partners and expand business.
HealtHIE Georgia Corporation, supported by SunLink Health System Technology who hosts, maintains and manages the technical infrastructure behind the HIE, is a network of rural Georgia hospitals and their physician communities working to improve patient care through health information technology. Georgia Health Information Network (GaHIN), the statewide health information exchange (HIE), has HealtHIE Georgia HIE serving rural Georgia healthcare providers, which is connected to the GaHIN network, enabling greater access to electronic health information and the Georgia State Clinical Viewer.
The network focuses on ways to build capacity and a network infrastructure that enables its participants to coordinate care and increase access to care for rural communities. Given the mandates of the Accountable Care Act, reimbursement complexities, Health IT vendor challenges, broadband access, etc., this supportive network is vital to the health of rural hospitals. The HealtHIE Georgia member hospitals together are accessing grant and loan opportunities available to non-profit collaborative networks. Our state and federal partners, business partners, and Georgia Southern University are working with us to achieve the objectives. Currently, we have established the Georgia’s Rural Service Area network and clinical exchange.
Georgia Health Information Network (GaHIN), the state’s nonprofit health information exchange (HIE), seeks to create a healthier Georgia by facilitating the use and secure exchange of patient health information to: Improve the health of the state’s entire population, Advance the quality of patient-centered care, and Increase efficiencies while reducing costs
