New York has recently made incredible progress building infrastructure on top of meaningful use, and in getting physicians and other healthcare providers connected to the SHIN-NY. Today, we have a mass of data available through this network that was never available before, employing policies of the state to protect privacy, security, and trust. It’s ripe for new innovative services to tap into it.
As social media week kicks off (with NYeC cohosting an event this evening about nurturing and funding innovation in New York) we think about the tremendous opportunity for collaboration afforded to us by this network—benefitting providers, their patients, and the health of New York State at large.
Much of this was outlined back in a talk back at the Digital Health Conference in October, and we thought now might be a good time to bring it back for an encore presentation.
