Working with early adopters across Medicaid, Public Health, and provider networks,
and West Virginia University Healthcare (WVUH) were selected to be the pilot sites for the program. The WVHIN launches with the ability to access clinical information on over 2.1 million patients including lab results (37 million distinct results), diagnosis history (96 million diagnoses), allergies (2.4 million), and patient visit history (88 million distinct patient visits over last 6 years).

The WVHIN exchange utilizes the Truven Health HIE Advantage™ solution to provide clinicians with a comprehensive patient history at the point of care by capturing real-time clinical and administrative data from electronic medical records, healthcare claims, West Virginia Medicaid Services, and the WV State Immunization Registry. The HIE is also the first to integrate end of life care choices made by patients, giving providers access to living wills, durable medical power of attorney, and other end of life care-related documents.
