Michigan Health Connect, the state's largest health information exchange, has a big new member, the six-hospital Detroit-based Henry Ford Health System.

“Henry Ford physicians and medical professionals now have another tool to use in providing the best patient care in the region,” Mary Alice Annecharico, senior vice president and chief information officer for HFHS, said in a release. “We are continuously working to improve patient care and joining the Michigan Health Connect network is another step in that process.”

In January, Michigan's two largest HIEs, Michigan Health Connect, headquartered in Grand Rapids, and the East Lansing-based Great Lakes Health Information Exchange, East Lansing, agreed to merge. The Michigan exchange serves more than 100 hospitals and more than 2,200 medical offices.
