Privacy & Security

You probably already know that the Iowa Health Information Network (IHIN) helps your doctors provide you with better and more cost effective care.  But did you know that the IHIN is also enhancing the privacy and security of your medical records?

Simply put, faxes, courier services and other “traditional” methods of exchanging health information can compromise your privacy. The technology and policies developed for the IHIN, however, help ensure that your personal health information is accessible only to those people who are responsible for your care.
