Health information exchange (HIE) networks have just gotten larger in New York State. On October 18, HealthlinkNY, a regional HIE network, announced that it is has connected the Hudson Valley and New York’s Southern Tier to the Statewide Health Information Network for New York (SHIN-NY). This will allow regions that are a part of HealthlinkNY to exchange health information with other regions that connect to the SHIN-NY. The HIE has been successfully employed across 11 counties in the state after the implementation of the Statewide Health Information Network of New York (SHIN-NY). This will allow clinicians to connect and securely share patient health information across New York, closing gaps in care, coordinating care, saving time, and saving money.
