Delaware Health Information Network marks 5th anniversary
The Delaware Health Information Network (DHIN) commemorated five years of operation on Friday, May 18, during a celebration event at the John H. Ammon Medical Education Center at Christiana Care. Speakers included: Randall Gaboriault, chief information officer at Christiana Care and the board chair of DHIN; Gov. Jack Markell; U.S. Sen. Tom Carper; Dr. Jan Lee, executive director of DHIN; and Khuram Ghumman, M.D., of St. Francis Healthcare.
“The real impact of DHIN is with patient care,” Gaboriault said. “Physicians now have at their fingertips the information they need to quickly determine a proper course of treatment. That information was often delayed or had to be repeated before DHIN became available.”
