The SHIN-NY Answers the Call for Social Determinants of Health

We recently submitted the SHIN-NY as an innovation and a creative way to improve patient outcomes through social determinants of health as a part of the New York State Department of Health’s Social Determinants of Health “Call for Innovations’ Initiative”. Out of over 200 applications, NYeC was selected to participate in a poster board presentation session to showcase our proposed innovation to approximately 500 attendees during the Social Determinants of Health Innovation Summit.

NYeC and the SHIN-NY’s shared mission with the Qualified Entities to improve healthcare by collaboratively leading, connecting, and integrating health information exchange across the state makes the organization an ideal partner to promote usage of and exchange of nonclinical data elements like Social Determinants of Health by potentially leveraging the existing SHIN-NY infrastructure.
