The Michiana Health Information Network, now in its twelfth year of service, offers healthcare providers across the Midwest advanced integration and communication tools for exchanging clinical data. Based in South Bend, Ind., MHIN offers immediate access to patient information in a single longitudinal record that integrates data from thousands of providers and health systems. MHIN's latest tool--cross document sharing (XDS)--lets participants in MHIN generate or accept an inquiry from any healthcare entity, facilitating Continuity of Care Document (CCD) delivery and ultimately a more complete picture of a patient's health through an aggregate summary of medical information. Clinicians can access this care summary (pictured above) through any EHR, reflecting MHIN's HIE interoperability. Providers and facilities across the healthcare spectrum--ranging from hospitals and laboratories to extended care facilities and public health departments--generate 10 million MHIN transactions a month. MHIN is subscription based. It offers annual and monthly subscriptions, depending on the size and needs of the healthcare organization.
