The Washington Health Information Network (WHIN) is a private health information exchange (HIE) that connects The Washington Hospital and physician practices affiliated with the Washington Physician Hospital Organization (WPHO). MobileMD is the backbone of WHIN. Denise Abraham, the health information exchange coordinator for The Washington Hospital, and Charles R. Vargo, executive director of the WPHO, work closely to keep this vital piece of caregiver connectivity alive. WHIN is having a positive impact on patient care and clinical practice by increasing physician knowledge and boosting efficiency by allowing physicians, nursing and key clinical staff secure access to key information such as lab and radiology reports and EKGs. The private HIE has united 13 EMRs from different vendors via interfaces to provide one data repository for enterprise access. Learn why they chose a private HIE, how it has evolved from 2006 until now and what advice they offer to other healthcare systems ready to embark on a private HIE project.
