The influx of patient opt-in signals a shift to both patient empowerment and patient-centered coordinated care. The Statewide Health Information Network of New York (SHIN-NY) now has 8.8 million patients opting into its health information exchange.
According to a public statement, approximately 62,000 provider users and millions of patients are now taking part in the statewide patient record lookup (sPLR), which allows providers to access patient data across the exchange. The HIE warehouses 40 million patient records and processes more than 2.8 million transactions per month.
With all stakeholders obtaining access to patient data, provider can more easily coordinate care and support positive patient outcomes.
