Two Long-Term Care Hospitals Go Live with a Bi-Directional Connection to the HealthlinkNY HIE

July 8th, 2015 - A multi-generational care hospital and a children’s specialty hospital go live with a Bi-Directional CCD-A Connection

Two hospitals are now live with a Bi-Directional Consolidated Clinical Document Architecture (CCD-A) connection to the HealthlinkNY HIE.

St. John’s Riverside Hospital prides itself on multi-generational care for patients in the City of Yonkers and Southern Westchester, with an unwavering commitment to delivering comprehensive emergency and surgical services.

Blythedale Children’s Hospital, located in Valhalla, New York, is the sole independent specialty children’s hospital in New York State. Blythedale’s top priority has been and remains the care for children with complex medical illnesses. Blythedale is one of only nineteen pediatric specialty hospitals in the United States.

The bi-directional CCD-A connection shared by these practices means that there’s a collaboration between the HealthlinkNY team, the participants and the EHR vendors to have the ability to both send and receive medical data through the HealthlinkNY HIE. This connection allows the participant to receive patient records from all participating providers with HealthlinkNY. The connection saves time for participating providers, improves the continuity of care patients receive, and allows for a more complete picture of the patients medical history. 

Both hospitals went live with Admission, Discharge and Transfer (ADT) feeds prior to the bi-directional CCD-A connection earlier this year.
