Healthix, Inc. Joins the SHINY and Shares Shining Moment with their Long-Time Partner North Shore-LIJ

One shining example of New York’s 2012 achievements occurred this past June, when Healthix, Inc., and its long-time partner North Shore-LIJ Health System, worked together to improve the coordination of care for mothers with high-risk pregnancies. This electronic interoperability in support of clinical care is a great demonstration of both the capabilities of Healthix, Inc., one of the largest RHIOs in the U.S., and the patient-centered focus of North Shore-LIJ.

Also in time for Health IT week, Healthix, Inc. announces its new partnership with the NYeC and its Statewide Health Information Network of New York (SHINY) Service Platform, which aims to create one solid infrastructure underpinning health information exchange for New York State.

Healthix, Inc. brings its membership of over 165 facilities, seven million individual patients, and 5,000 clinicians in the downstate New York area to the SHINY project, which currently has four other RHIO partnerships: BHIX (Brooklyn Health Information Exchange), eHealth Network of Long Island, Interboro RHIO, and THINC (Taconic Health Information Network and Community), which serves the Hudson Valley Region.
