What is KHIN?
Kansas Health Information Network is a private health information network in Kansas created to allow connected physicians, healthcare facilities and other healthcare providers to share patient information. Participants will have access to powerful analytic reports designed to help improve patient encounters and clinical outcomes while also empowering physicians as they transition to the new alternative payment models involving quality reporting, advancing care information, clinical practice improvements and resource use. KAMMCO has partnered to offer the aforementioned products and services across the state.
Who will benefit from this venture in Kansas?
Patients, physicians, healthcare facilities and other healthcare providers across the state, especially the members of the KHIN, will realize the benefits of such a forward-thinking endeavor. While using connectivity to improve patient point-of care encounters, this partnership will empower Kansas physicians as they transition to the new models of healthcare delivery, quality reporting, and performance-based payments. Once again, KHIN has positioned itself to lead the way.
How will this HIE be different than what is established in Kansas now?
The KAMMCO partnership is a physician-led effort with an advisory committee comprised of physician leaders. This physician-led approach which will build upon a proven model for the development of the technical infrastructure necessary to enable the sharing of clinical information at the point of care, while supporting value based payment models, care management, and data analytics that will ultimately, transform healthcare delivery across the country. There is not another HIE in Kansas now that is delivering actionable intelligence such as this to its participants.
The Kansas Health Information Network will work collaboratively with the already established RHIOs across to state to help make interoperability a reality in Kansas.
