Program Description

This webinar will go into detail about the Georgia Health Information Network (GaHIN) which serves with the Georgia Department of Community Health (DCH) and the Georgia Health Information Technology Extension Center (GA-HITEC) in a public-private collaborative to establish Georgia's statewide health information exchange, to connect Regional Area HIEs, large integrated health systems, payers, wellness partners and other healthcare stakeholders. These organizations have come together to enable a statewide electronic health information network through governance, project management, policy development, business and financial planning, technical infrastructure development, marketing, and stakeholder engagement.

It is critical for rural healthcare to facilitate a statewide health information network for Georgia that is trusted and valued by all stakeholders in order to improve healthcare coordination, reduce costs, and establish a solid foundation for long-term financial sustainability.
