When it comes to healthcare, sharing information is important. In life’s unexpected events, having access to healthcare information can help clinicians quickly identify diagnoses. The North Dakota Health Information Network (NDHIN) makes record sharing faster and easier for authorized clinicians. The record-sharing methods are safe and confidential. Protecting the privacy and security of health information is a top priority for NDHIN.
The NDHIN is a public/private partnership that resides within North Dakota’s Information Technology (NDIT) department. Over the past decade, North Dakota has taken the concept of a statewide HIE from the drawing board to a functioning exchange. With initial funding from state appropriations and a federal ONC grant, NDHIN began operations in 2010 and currently has participants representing 400+ locations/points of care across the state. A network model, statewide HIE, NDHIN provides value through a secure online network for electronic health information exchange, a robust patient data set, and an increasing number of connections among North Dakota hospitals, providers, and other related entities.
