The New Jersey Health Information Network (NJHIN) provides the infrastructure for electronic exchange of patient health information among Health Information Organizations and State health data sources. It also is the primary vehicle for New Jersey to eventually exchange health information nationally with the eHealth Exchange. The NJHIN accomplishes this goal by building a collection of services that enable a statewide Master Person Index (MPI) and Health Provider Directory (HPD). These services support the 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. 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.
