How We Work
etHIN provides a secure Health Information Exchange (HIE) technology platform to its Community of Care. This secure solution replaces traditional modes of sharing medical records such as faxing, calling, mailing, patient pick-up, and couriers. etHIN gives authorized providers immediate access to patients’ records from providers across the community, including hospitals and other physicians.
Many of the major hospital systems in the region are participating in the network, as well as numerous physicians’ groups. New participants are being added regularly, and expansion efforts continue. Data sources targeted include primary care physicians’ practices, specialty practices, long term care / skilled nursing facilities and multiple other healthcare provider types.
