Overview

The Oklahoma State Health Information Network and Exchange (OKSHINE) is the state designated Health Information Exchange (HIE) that will allow health information to flow seamlessly to and from authorized organizations and individuals in Oklahoma. The HIE’s goal is to meet the needs of end users, allowing providers and their patients, hospitals and health systems, payers, state health agencies, and local health departments to have secure, accurate data available at the right time and place, for the right purposes.

"Oklahoma has embarked on a journey to become a top-ten state and the path to get there has to be focused on challenging the status quo. Leveraging data through a state-wide HIE will help us down that path by providing efficient and effective solutions to aid the state in delivering valuable care, managing programs and services and improving population health.” 

Carter Kimble, Executive Director, State Health Information Exchange

MISSION

To enhance health care delivery in Oklahoma by providing timely access to a secure and trusted health information ecosystem while protecting individual privacy.

VISION

To help realize Oklahoma’s goal of becoming a top ten healthy state.



Why OKSHINE?

The HIE provides the capability to electronically collect, store, and share clinical information among disparate healthcare information systems while maintaining its privacy and security. The HIE facilitates appropriate and secure access to and retrieval of clinical data to provide safe, more timely, efficient, effective, equitable, patient-centered care. The HIE is helpful for connecting with multiple public health authorities to assist in the analyses of population health and the effectiveness of treatments.

OKSHINE connects providers throughout the state through our secure, online network to share patients’ virtual health records. Members include hospitals, ambulatory practices, ancillary services, behavioral health, specialty care providers, emergency medical services, social services organizations, and payers. Through OKSHINE, members track their patients care received outside of their facility to facilitate greater care coordination.
