My Medical Neighborhood Coalition on Health Connects to GaHIN
“The MMNCH HIE links members of the care community in northwest Georgia, allowing them to exchange patient health information and supporting care coordination,” said Alex Hutchinson, executive director of MMNCH. “With our connection to GaHIN, we greatly increase interoperability and gain the ability to exchange information with providers across the state of Georgia as well as surrounding states, while also connecting with five Georgia state agencies.”
My Medical Neighborhood was created by Mohawk Industries, the world’s largest flooring company, to enhance health and care coordination for employees and their families. Individuals under the Mohawk healthcare plan can access a network of healthcare providers that offer greater coverage while lowering costs.
MMNCH evolved from this benefits program with the goal of creating an HIE serving communities in northwest Georgia and southeast Tennessee, including Chattanooga. The nonprofit includes 45 healthcare organizations including health systems and provider practices, representing 200 physical locations and 110,000 unique patients registered in the HIE.
