The Utah Health Information Network (UHIN) was launched in 1993 as a clearinghouse and began offering HIE services in 2009. Their mission is to positively impact healthcare through reduced costs, improved quality, and better results through data-driven decisions. UHIN also recently connected with HIEs in Arizona and western Colorado to form a Patient-Centered Data Home.
Teresa Rivera, President & CEO of The Utah Health Information Network (UHIN) joins us to discuss the history of UHIN. She emphasizes the importance of keeping up with the pace of changing technologies and urges HIE organizations to work together to improve care for patients regardless of where they seek treatment.
