Healthcare Data as a Public Utility: How Do We Get There?

NYeC News: Vol 72: JUNE 23, 2016

Forty-six million Americans use mobile fitness and health apps. Over half of providers serving Medicare or Medicaid patients are using electronic health records (EHRs).

There’s a quiet revolution going on in New York State. While the national debate continues about Obamacare and how to reduce healthcare expenditures, New York has already taken action. Thanks to a significant investment in technology and operational capacity, New York State is building a digital network of electronic medical records that will literally transform how patient care is provided and deliver major cost savings. It’s called the Statewide Health Information Network of New York, or SHIN-NY, and it puts New York State far out ahead of all other states when it comes to Health IT.

New York’s Success: A Study in Partnership

In 2009, my family and I moved from Portland to New York City so I could take my current position at NYeC.

Four years later, as we launch the 2013 National Health IT Week, I take this moment to reflect on how far we have come.
