Additionally, this Committee provides guidance for planning future functions, makes change requests, and ensures technical resources are appropriately dedicated to the project and that their systems are positioned for DHIN connectivity to ensure projects are implemented on time and consistent with specifications.

“I think it has saved a lot of money particularly for my practice. I’m not getting duplicate faxes sent to me and from other facilities and that’s been a huge resource in terms of time. My staff is not spending time on the phone trying to get results sent. Instead we can just log onto DHIN, verify the patient, and have access to all of that in less than 30 seconds.”
