GaHIN has rolled out a new Care Alerts program that will enhance the value of data within the Network for members and facilitate care coordination. Care alerts notify clinicians and other organizations of their patients’ hospital admissions, discharges and transfers (ADTs).
The initial use of the system is by Amerigroup, one of four care management organizations (CMOs) serving Georgia Medicaid and Medicare patients. The Division of Family and Children Services (DFACS) is also using the system to proactively track the population they serve. And the Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta (CHOA), the largest children’s hospital in the Southeast and a member of Georgia’s statewide HIE network, is participating.
Two statewide specialty practices have joined GaHIN, which offers new opportunities to access patient health data:
DaVita Healthcare Partners – one of the largest kidney care companies in the U.S.
Atlanta Gastroenterology Associates – one of the largest gastroenterology practices in the U.S.

The Interoperability/ Clinical Viewer sessions, usually held on the fourth Friday of the month at 11:00 AM, include presenters from DCH and GaHIN who offer “how to” instructions for signing up and using the Clinical Viewer as well as more in-depth insights on this new tool for Medicaid providers.
