Georgia Health Information Network
Providers are encouraged to participate in the Georgia Heath Information Network (GaHIN). This exchange of information can save time, improve care, reduce costs and enhance privacy for your patients.
The Georgia Health Information Network gives its members the ability to access a more complete view of their patient health information directly from their electronic health record (EHR) systems. At any time, a patient may choose to “opt-out” of having his or her electronic records shared through the network. He or she can simply complete an opt-out form from the doctor. If a patient does opt-out, no providers can share his or her health records through the network. If a patient does opt-out, but changes his or her mind, he or she can easily opt back into the system.
To start the registration process and learn more, visit the GaHIN website.
