Delaware Health Information Network Announces New Technology Partner for Community Health Record
Flagship Service Returns 71,000 Patient Records Daily
DOVER, DE (April 4, 2023) — Delaware Heath Information Network (DHIN), the First State’s health information exchange, is pleased to announce its technology partnership with Outcome Healthcare to develop the next iteration of DHIN’s Community Health Record, scheduled to go live later this year.
The Community Health Record, one of DHIN’s core services, is a longitudinal patient record for clinicians and care providers, showing an aggregated view of a patient across geography, time and care settings. More than three million patients from all fifty states can be found in DHIN’s Community Health Record.
“Selecting the right technology partner was a lengthy and thoughtful process for the DHIN team,” explained Chief Technology Officer Jeff Reger. “We worked collaboratively with representatives from our stakeholders to ensure the voice of the user was heard in choosing our path forward.”
“Outcome Healthcare is eager to take DHIN’s Community Health Record to the next level,” said Outcome Founder & CEO Justin Kaltenbach. “We’re proud to deploy a proven, extensive healthcare architecture to best equip health information exchanges like DHIN to manage patient data securely, accurately and quickly.”
DHIN serves as the central nervous system for healthcare data in Delaware and parts of the surrounding region, sharing real-time clinical information to improve patient outcomes, eliminate the duplication of services and reduce the cost of healthcare. DHIN also powers Delaware’s Health Care Claims Database, supporting public and private entities looking to leverage data analytics insights for research and policy purposes, including clinical trials recruitment.
Details about the new Community Health Record will be available on dhin.org/chr.
DHIN, the Delaware Health Information Network, was the first live, statewide health information exchange in the nation. Launched in 2007, today it serves all of Delaware’s acute care hospitals and nearly 100% of the state’s medical providers. More than 18 million clinical results and messages are processed through DHIN each year. There are over three million unique patients with results on DHIN, including patients from all 50 states. DHIN shares real-time clinical information to improve patient outcomes, eliminate the duplication of services and reduce the cost of healthcare.
