WIXOM, Mich., June 12, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Michigan Health Information Network Shared Services (MIHIN) taps Stephen Shaya, M.D., EVP of Business Development, Medical Affairs, and Innovation of J & B and HNC as a panelist. The distinguished panel of four will discuss the following: "The Economic Implications of our Improving Our Health." Governor Rick Snyder, Nick Lyon, Director of Michigan Department of Health and Human Services, and Major General Elder Granger will be talking prior on issues related to Healthy Michigan, health information technology and precision medicine.
"Admission, Discharge, Transfer (ADT) notification is widely regarded as a keystone to improving patient care coordination through health information exchange. Real time ADT notifications also support the identification of patients who are frequent or high users of the health care system, which allows providers to steer these patients toward clinical and non-clinical interventions that may reduce unnecessary overutilization by preventing avoidable emergency department (ED) visits and hospital readmissions. Working closely with MiHIN and leveraging our state of the art virtual care technology and best in class clinical team, we will be able to receive information more quickly and be able to make real time clinical decisions which would help to take care coordination to another level."
