Michigan Health Information Network Shared Services, the federally funded, state-designated entity to support health information exchange across the state, has taken steps to support the secure sharing of behavioral health information.

PCE Systems, a vendor of electronic health records for behavioral health providers, has signed legal papers to become a “virtually qualified data sharing organization” through the network, called MiHIN. This will allow regional HIEs in the state to link their networks--through MIHIN--to behavioral health and substance abuse treatment providers connected to PCE’s data exchange.

The Upper Peninsula Health Information Exchange will pilot test the new service. The rural HIE covers about 16,400 square miles with more than 900 medical and ancillary providers serving 300,000 residents.
