NDHIN has been connected to the eHealth Exchange for several years now. The eHealth Exchange is a continually growing health information exchange network for securely sharing clinical information nationwide. It is the largest HIE infrastructure in the United States. Recently, NDHIN finished testing with the Mayo Clinic through the eHealth Exchange hub. This means that Mayo Clinic records are query-able through NDHIN’s external records search. This has been a long sought-after capability by NDHIN participants, and we are proud to announce that functionality. What does this mean for NDHIN? Health care providers participating in the NDHIN will be able to securely access a patient’s medical history from Mayo Clinic facilities through the eHealth Exchange, by using the external records search from the NDHIN clinical portal.
