What is Health IT?

Health IT (health information technology) is an important concept that encompasses an array of technologies to store, share, and analyze health information.
Thanks to today's innovations, more and more healthcare providers and organizations are using health IT to provide high quality, cost efficient, and patient-centered care. By providing doctors with more complete patient records, hospitals with better data, and patients with improved diagnosis/treatment information, health IT lifts the entire healthcare system.

NYeC has advanced to the forefront of significant advances in health information technology. Due to the efforts of this non-profit organization, secure, accessible electronic health records (EHRs) are becoming standard practice in New York State.

NYeC is accelerating this important transition, empowering citizens by educating professionals in the industry and patients in need of care. The secure exchange of records in instances where patients require more complex treatment and involve multiple providers is a priority.
