Healthix, a wide-spanning health information exchange in New York State, has connected with the private HIEs run by Long Island’s Northwell Health and the Manhattan-based Mount Sinai Health System.
By linking with Mount Sinai and Northwell Health, the organizations will be able to share richer and more trustworthy data sets with each other and across New York, making for more effective population health management, officials say.
Healthix exchanges data from 16 million patients at healthcare organizations throughout greater New York City and Long Island: not just hospitals, but, physician practices, behavioral health facilities, long-term care facilities, payers and more. The data flowing through the HIE includes more than just encounter data and labs, also comprising allergies, documents, immunizations, and other data – all available bidirectionally to health organizations across the Empire State through the SHIN-NY.
