Connecting Care Communities in Georgia
Physicians regularly complain that technology has complicated their workday and added a new level of administrative burden.
There are benefits, however, and one of the most notable is the ability to better track and securely share patients’ interactions with care providers, including hospitals, labs, imaging and more. In Georgia, these connections are made possible through the GaHIN, the state-designated health information exchange (HIE).
GaHIN facilitates the secure exchange of patient health information so providers have patient information at the point of care. The result is improved quality of care, better health outcomes and reduced costs.

Hospitals can be the center of the healthcare community, working with owned and independent physician groups and specialists, short-term and long-term care facilities, rehabilitation services, social services, state and national government departments, and many more groups.
