Delaware to Build First Statewide Health Information Network, "DHIN", (RHIO)

Statewide intiatives can be used to connect local RHIOs and serve as the building blocks for the NHIN. SV

DOVER, Del.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The Delaware Health Information Network (DHIN) and the Delaware Health Care Commission today announced a contract award to Medicity, Inc. to build the first statewide health information exchange to give physicians instant electronic access to patient information at the time and place of care. The signing of this contract is a critical step in making the idea of electronic health records a reality in Delaware and builds on the nearly $5 million in federal funding that Senators Joe Biden and Tom Carper and U.S. Representative Mike Castle have secured.
