HL7® FHIR® (Fast Healthcare Interoperability Resources) represents a paradigm shift in healthcare data exchange. In our most recent blog post, Ryan McLelland (Chief Technology Officer at UHIN) provides a thought-provoking look at the benefits of FHIR, the myths around it, and a strategic approach to implementing this powerful catalyst for innovation in healthcare. 

Maintaining a strong security posture is critical for protecting personal health information (PHI) and other data. Good practices include establishing interoperability, resiliency and redundancy across your network. As ransomware attacks continue to climb in the US, you need to cover your network to make sure you don’t get burned.

We continue to monitor and share updates about the Change Healthcare (CHC) breach on our News & Updates page. You can also sign up to receive Status updates via email, Slack, text, and other preferred methods whenever UHIN creates, updates or resolves an incident, including information about the CHC breach.

In July, we’re starting our virtual Payer Panel series where you can ask questions and get answers from health plan representatives.

Later this year, we’ll host training sessions on the new CHIE platform, specifically for portal users.

We continue to support Providers affected by the CHC breach by working with payers to expedite Provider enrollment. Once enrolled, Providers can use our solutions to create and send professional and institutional claims via SFTP, file tool or online hand-entry, check claims status, manage denials and rejections, and search, view, and download payment information.
