SHIN-NY Spotlight: Early HIE Adopter Boosts Care Coordination for Underserved Populations

Elmwood Health Center partners with HEALTHeLINK to lower the cost of care and emergency admissions.

Elmwood Health Center has long recognized the value of health information exchange (HIE) for its patients in Buffalo and Western New York. Serving those with developmental disabilities and a predominantly underserved population, enhancing care coordination and driving down the costs of care delivery are top of mind.

As an early adopter of HIE, Elmwood utilizes HEALTHeLINK, one of New York's qualified entities that comprise the Statewide Health Information Network for New York, to support patient-centered, value-based care.

Watch Elmwood's Barbara Johnson, RN-BC, MS, Director of Clinical Services, speak on the value of HIE and its impact on improving patient outcomes and the patient experience.
