HealthlinkNY Announces Fourteen New Participation Agreements

December 15th, 2015 - The HealthlinkNY team has been hard at work to ensure the year comes to an end on a positive note with many new connections. Since November 1st HealthlinkNY has seen fourteen new Participation Agreements signed with institutions across the HealthlinkNY coverage area. These new connections include a number of major healthcare providers such as the Guthrie Medical System, Greater Hudson Valley Health System, and Middletown Medical. The full list of new Participation agreements includes:

  • Bridgewater Center for Rehabilitation & Nursing, Binghamton
  • Children’s and Women’s Physicians of Westchester, Hawthorne
  • Middletown Medical, 17 Locations
  • Bambini Pediatrics PC, Poughkeepsie
  • Hal N Buch MD, PC, Yonkers
  • Wingate at  Saint Francis, LLC, Beacon
  • Wingate of Dutchess, Inc., Fishkill

  • Chautauqua Nursing and Rehabilitation Center, Dunkirk
  • Golden Hill Nursing and Rehabilitation Center, Kingston
  • Anderson Medical PC, Kingston
  • Guthrie Medical, 59 Locations, Twin Tiers (Pennsylvania and New York)
A Participation Agreement is the first step in establishing a new connection to the HealthlinkNY HIE. Once the agreement has been signed, HealthlinkNY can begin working with the institution to develop connections tailored to meet the needs of physicians and patients alike. Connections with major institutions such as these mean that the coming year will bring the services of the HealthlinkNY HIE to countless new patients, physicians, and practice locations. The new data that these institutions will contribute to the HealthlinkNY HIE will benefit both patients and providers by increasing the flow of information in and out of the HIE as well as facilitating a more complete and comprehensive patient record for individuals throughout the HIE. 

HealthlinkNY is optimistic that this positive trend will continue into the New Year and is thankful for all those who have worked so hard to establish these new relationships. HealthlinkNY is proud to share the HIE connection with such valuable partners and looks forward to the future as we continue to advance healthcare together.
