The Utah Health Information Network (UHIN) is a nonprofit, broad-based coalition of Utah healthcare insurers, providers, and others, including local government entities. UHIN provides a private and secure gateway for electronic data exchanges. These exchanges include the large integrated healthcare corporations, as well as the smallest one-doctor offices.
Since 1993, UHIN members have come together for the common goal of reducing healthcare costs and improving the quality of care through the use of electronic data interchange (EDI).
UHIN gathers and provides data to a statewide data repository in addition to conducting educational programs consistent with its goals.
UHIN members use nationally accepted transaction formats and codes that are agreed upon by the Utah healthcare community. This means all the parties exchange data in a standard format using standard codes. This not only saves money, but also opens the door to improving patient care and safety.
