A recent EHR Intelligence article discussed the preliminary report NYeC released this month on usage of Statewide Health Information Network for New York (SHIN-NY) services. Researchers in the study analyzed the rate at which users of the SHIN-NY utilized ADT notifications and query-based exchange services from three Qualified Entitles (QEs) over a one-year period.
Ultimately, researchers found ADT notification utilization increased by 95 percent between 2016 and 2017, while query-based health data exchange jumped by 102 percent.
The next phase of the multi-part study will analyze the ways alerts and query-based health data exchange improve patient health outcomes and cut costs for healthcare organizations in a variety of care settings.
