Michigan Health Information Network Shared Services (MiHIN) COVID-19 Response in Michigan

Michigan Health Information Network Shared Services (MiHIN) has been leading the way in various efforts surrounding the secure exchange of health information for a decade. Our focus has always been, and always will be, the residents of Michigan. With the COVID-19 pandemic, it has been our mission over the past several weeks to amplify our efforts in the best way possible to reduce burdens on our medical communities and lead statewide efforts to increase efficiency for sharing data, accessing data across care givers, and reduce burdens on physicians and those on the front line. Together, with Michigan Department of Health & Human Services, we have accomplished a great deal in a short amount of time. 
Each week, over 17 million messages and pieces of health information get passed through our system; Admission, Discharge, and Transfer notifications, lab results, are incorporated in the response to COVID-19, we have only continued to increase the ability to securely exchange critical, real-time, patient data.
•	MiHIN’s main priority is to utilize the key information that is flowing through the network to accomplish comprehensive use of the data. MiHIN has created reports that contain:
	Admissions to an Emergency Department for COVID and Non-COVID
	Discharges from an Emergency Department COVID and Non-COVID
	Admission In-Patient COVID and Non-COVID
	Discharge from In-Patient COVID and Non-COVID
	ICU Admission COVID and Non-COVID
	ICU Discharge COVID and Non-COVID
The data is being used and analyzed in new ways to support the effort of cohesive care across teams. 
•	MiHIN’s Active Care Relationship Service® (ACRS®) has been turned on for all hospitals across the state of Michigan; the file will also be routed back to the sender
•	In conjunction with the Lab Database, MiHIN is placing indicators on the ACRS files indicating a Covid-19 Positive, Negative, Indeterminant result, along with the date
•	MiHIN is routing all COVID-19 lab results to the State of Michigan
