Empowering Healthcare Professionals with Information at the Point of Service

What is AHIN?

With the ever-changing healthcare environment today, providers face a broad range of operational and organizational challenges. Advanced Health Information Network (AHIN) delivers one system to simplify those challenges using innovative health information technology. AHIN is a free, secure web-based portal that provides real-time functionality, delivering current patient information on demand 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. It was one of the first health information networks in the United States to offer advanced functionality and continues to offer capabilities unique within the industry. This functionality is the primary reason Hospitals and Health Networks magazine identified Arkansas Blue Cross and Blue Shield as one of the “10 Most Wired Health Plans” in the country.
