The Kansas Health Information Network, a statewide HIE based in Topeka, has signed its 1,000th provider four months after starting enrollment.

About 40 percent of the providers are from independent practices and 60 percent from hospitals. They represent 18 hospitals and 73 clinics. Approximately 100 providers are active users who have logged in during the past month.

The HIE is live on secure clinical messaging software, implemented in August 2011, and operates the state's Web-based immunization registry. It expects to start exchanging data via provider and patient portals during the first quarter of 2012. The network uses an HIE platform from Informatics Corporation of American, Nashville, Tenn.

Leaders of the HIE include the state medical and hospital associations. More information is available at khinonline.org.
