Gatesix, a software development and consulting firm based in Phoenix, AZ, announced the completion of The Health Industry Number System (HIN®) version 6.0. The new HIN system is being rolled out and is expected to have an immediate impact on daily business process and efficiencies.
The new HIN System was built as a multi-tier smart client application using the Microsoft .NET platform for more efficient processing and delivery of data. The new interface provides an enhanced user experience, while the architecture ensures extensibility, ease of integration, and capacity matching.
During the past fifteen years the HIN has become an integral component of many supply chain processes. Through a centralized and standardized repository, the HIN System provides consistency and accuracy of customer identification for hundreds of major manufacturers, distributors and provider organizations, as well as US government agencies such as Department of Defense, US Public Health Service, VA Hospital System and the Centers for Disease Control.
"Gatesix performed a technical assessment of the HIN System following a multi-step process from information gathering to analysis, to recommendationm" says Michael Mayer, Director of Business Development.
