Why etHIN is for you
Additional patient information obtained through a secure Regional Health Information Organization (RHIO) like etHIN may help reduce your administrative costs and avoid duplicate lab and radiology costs for your practice. Delays in receiving important information that might negatively impact patient care may also be avoided.
Information available through etHIN can assist with pre-authorizations and pre-certifications. You can obtain documentation for procedural and diagnosis coding, potentially enabling you to streamline your billing cycle.
For providers who accept Medicare or Medicaid, use of etHIN’s services may help meet the goal of sharing health information under the Meaningful Use requirements defined by the Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health (HITECH) Act of 2009.
Providers who use Electronic Health Record (EHR) systems report tangible improvements in their ability to make better decisions with more comprehensive information, according to HealthIT.gov.
