NY accelerates state health information exchange
New York has corralled three Regional Health Information Organizations (RHIOs) and three health IT vendors to participate in the Statewide Health Information Network of New York (SHIN-NY). As an increasing number of N.Y.-based private practices, nursing homes, clinics, and hospitals are using electronic health records (EHRs), many have connected their systems to RHIOs in their part of the state. A recent announcement made by the New York eHealth Collaborative (NYeC), along with the New York State Department of Health, said the three RHIOs include the Brooklyn Health Information Exchange, the e-Health Network of Long Island, and the Taconic Health Information Network and Community (THINC). They're joined by vendors HealthUnity, IBM, and InterSystems.
