The Washington-based National eHealth Collaborative (NeHC) has created a program designed to educate and engage health IT stakeholders on efforts to develop the Nationwide Health Information Network (NHIN). The inaugural semester of “NHIN University” will feature a series of webinars designed to provide stakeholders with foundational knowledge about what the NHIN is, how it works, and the importance of providing a foundation for the safe and secure exchange of health information, it says.

The next class in the NHIN 100 series — Secure and Meaningful Exchange of Health Information over the Internet — will be held Tuesday, March 16 at 2 p.m. (EST). The class will be led by Douglas Fridsma, M.D., Ph.D., acting director, Office of Standards and Interoperability, Office of the National Coordinator for Health IT (ONC), and associate professor of Biomedical Informatics at Arizona State University.

NHIN 103: Architectures for Health Information Exchange and their Use, will be offered in April, and will be taught by Richard Kernan, NHIN Specification Lead (Contractor), ONC. NHIN 104: The Trust Fabric of the NHIN: Making Exchange a Good Choice will be held in May. In addition, recorded webinars and class transcripts will also be available on the NeHC website.
