WVHIN’s robust Health Information Exchange (HIE) service allows providers to “query” or look up available patient health information within a network.
The WVHIN is currently integrated with numerous provider organizations across the region. Ambulatory Connectivity will focus on expanding integrations with providers in multiple care settings beyond the hospitals to include both physician practices and post-acute care facilities.
