MiHIN Simplifies Data Exchange with State-of-the-Art Data Sharing from openAirWare

MI-MiHIN-200Michigan Health Information Network Shared Services (MiHIN) (@MiHIN) maintains its position as a leader in data exchange with efforts of Clinical Document Architecture (CDA) national experts, openAirWare (@openAirWare). openAirWare recently developed MiHIN’s intelligent CCD/CDA parser that interprets and transforms a wide range of CDA messages allowing the extraction of specific information such as medications.

“This intuitive middleware provides faster integration of data from CCD or CDA sources and allows MiHIN to pull key data out of large CCD/CDA documents so that only the data needed for a particular use case is shared,” said Jeff Livesay, Associate Director, MiHIN. “This capability increases the value of vital use cases like medication reconciliation. It uses proven standards that simplify seamless sharing of data, allowing us to quickly and easily assess, validate and integrate new source systems.”

“Additionally, we can pull data out of CCD/CDA documents and put the data into FHIR resources. We are heavily committed to FHIR and this very advanced, state-of-the-art parser developed for us by openAirWare will accelerate our FHIR efforts.”

MiHIN was attracted to openAirWare’s proven expertise as seen in their medication reconciliation work and comprehensive population health and EMR applications. “Years of innovation keep us at the forefront of healthcare,” acknowledges openAirWare CEO Mark Brown. “Our expertise continues to support the State of Michigan as a national leader in the exchange of health information and data sharing. We tackle the toughest initiatives to ensure the advancement of HIT across the U.S.”
