Online medical records system planned for N.Y.
The 10-county Rochester area is a leader in the state when it comes to sharing patients' medical records electronically across different places where care or testing is provided — such as hospitals, labs, imaging facilities and doctors' offices.
The record-sharing network has been created by the Rochester Regional Health Information Organization, or RHIO, granted nearly $24 million so far. The money has connected different medical computer record systems and paid for some private practices and clinics to switch from paper to digital patient records.
