The North Dakota Health Information Network (NDHIN) is creating a secure, state-wide medical record sharing network for providers and consumers. The NDHIN will simplify the medical record sharing process, creating a roadmap of data for a more thorough understanding of patients' conditions, allowing for up-to-the-minute decisions and faster diagnoses. This will help reduce patient intake time, minimize duplicate tests and paperwork, and give providers more one-on-one time with patients. Their vision is to achieve quality healthcare for all North Dakotans anywhere, anytime. To further deliver on its vision and build on its previous work, NDHIN is expanding access to additional valuable real-time medication data and implementing a new reporting tools to proactively monitor patients’ medication management and adherence. With an open and scalable platform for population health, HIEs can deliver a comprehensive approach to acquiring, enriching, analyzing and presenting actionable clinical and claims data, as well as non-traditional data.
