Ezras Choilim Health Center Is Now Exchanging Data with the HealthlinkNY HIE

September 14th, 2015 - Ezras Choilim Health Center is now live with a Bi-Directional C-CDA connection to the HealthlinkNY HIE.

On August 24th Ezras Choilim Health Center began submitting Consolidated-Clinical Document Architectures (C-CDA’s) to HealthlinkNY. This type of electronic document contains essential patient medical information, including encounter data, allergies, medications, immunizations, vitals, problems, and procedures. As of September 11th, the Health Center is now able to request and receive these same documents from the HealthlinkNY HIE, which includes information from other connected providers in the region, and import that data directly into their own patient record system.

Ezras Choilim Health Center is a Federally Qualified Health Center (FQHC) located in Monroe, New York. Over the past fifteen years, Ezras has grown to offer a wide range of services including primary care, dental, rehabilitative and behavioral health services, as well as a specialized women’s health clinic. Ezras Choilim’s service area is located approximately fifty miles north of New York City and has recently expanded its medical staff and academic partnerships to meet the evolving needs of the developing surrounding community.

Through HealthlinkNY the health center now has the ability to access their patient’s medical histories from providers outside of their health system. This helps to improve the continuity of care for their patients as well as reduce duplicate treatment efforts.

Ezras strives to provide a comprehensive and highly adaptive treatment experience that now revolves around their ability to provide and access up to date information through the HealthlinkNY HIE connection.
