SHIN-NY

Governance

The SHIN-NY Privacy and Security Policies and Procedures for Qualified Entities and their Participants V 4.0 can be found at the link below. Policies & Procedures

The SHIN-NY is governed by an open and transparent process that brings together key stakeholders in the state to contribute input and expertise on the development and implementation of SHIN-NY policy and technical standards.

This process is known as the Statewide Collaboration Process. NYeC, in partnership with the NYS DOH, convenes several committees that are representative of stakeholders with an interest and investment in health information exchange via the SHIN-NY.

The SHIN-NY operates under the Privacy and Security Policies and Procedures for Qualified Entities and their Participants, which was designed to establish a set of privacy and security rules that govern the exchange of information via the SHIN-NY to ensure that health information remains confidential and can be accessed only with consent of the patient/consumer.
