About Us

NJII’s New Jersey Health Information Network (NJHIN) Shared Services Platform is the New Jersey State-designated entity to build a collection of services that enable a statewide Master Person Index (MPI) and Health Provider Directory (HPD). These services support our primary-use case, which is achieving an automated Transitions of Care (TOC) program through which the NJHIN accurately and efficiently delivers Admission, Discharge and Transfer (ADT) notifications to connected New Jersey Health Information Exchange (HIE) participants, such as providers and long-term and post-acute care (LTPAC) organizations. Moreover, the NJHIN facilitates connected participants’ queries to the New Jersey Immunization Registry. Additional NJHIN services include a Common Key Service (CKS) and the Active Care Relationship Service (ACRS) to help with patient matching and patient-provider attributions, respectively.
