About the THA Health Information Network

The THA Health Information Network (THA HIN) was formed in 1999 by the Tennessee Hospital Association to assist member hospitals in meeting the requirements for hospital discharge data reporting mandated by State law.
Through partnerships with other associations and leading industry vendors, the THA HIN provides members with the additional products, services, consulting and technical support they need to improve their facility’s efficiency, effectiveness and quality of care.

Our Mission

The mission of the THA Health Information Network is to provide the best, least work-intensive, most cost-effective data solution for THA and THA HIN members.
In the process, THA HIN will maintain control of both access to and release of data to the greatest extent possible.
Additionally, THA HIN will ensure availability of the quality analysis and consulting services needed by Tennessee hospitals, as well as meet all legal reporting requirements.
