When GaHIN launched GeorgiaDirect in July 2012 in conjunction with the Department of Community Health, no one could have predicted that the service would grow exponentially. As of November 2018, there are 6,305 registered users, including 323 member organizations, registered to use this service to electronically exchange CCDs (Continuity of Care Documents) and other clinical information.
The same is true for GaHIN's query-based exchange, Georgia ConnectedCare. It began in August 2013, when Medicaid became the first member (node) to go live, making 1.8 million Medicaid members' claims information available on the network. Now there are 32,039,059 patient records in GaHIN's MPI with ~12,942 connected providers (as of October 2018).
Here's a look at how GeorgiaDirect and Georgia ConnectedCare transactions have increased over the past few years.
