Two New Hudson Valley Practices Go-Live

December 11th, 2015 - Dr. Hal N. Buch Gastroenterology and Bambini Pediatrics Go-Live with Bi-Directional C-CDA Connections. 

The Second of December saw two new Hudson Valley medical practices connect to the HealthlinkNY HIE through bi-directional Consolidated Clinical Document Architecture (C-CDA) data feeds. Bambini Pediatrics of Poughkeepsie, N.Y. and the office of Dr. Hal N. Buch Gastroenterology in Kingston, N.Y. now have the ability to both send and receive complete community health records for patients visiting their offices via the HealthlinkNY Health Information Exchange (HIE). These new feeds will allow instant access to a patient’s complete community health record through their existing MEDENT Electronic Medical Record (EMR) viewer. For doctors, this means a drastically improved workflow facilitated by more information without the need for further training.

This new comprehensive community health record provided by HealthlinkNY will allow doctors to view a patient’s encounter information, allergies, vitals, immunizations, medications, and a host of other essential data in a single, easily accessible location. For physicians, this connection to the HealthlinkNY HIE not only improves the quality of care provided to patients, but also simplifies day to day secure communication needs.

For patients the new connection means less time transporting records between providers, decreased wait times, and a more comprehensive and adaptive treatment experience. Additionally, the ability to view a patient’s current medications, means a decreased risk of negative drug interactions as well as a reduction in duplicate medical testing, all while maintaining the highest level of patient information confidentiality.

HealthlinkNY is excited to announce this new development in its connection with Dr. Buch N. Buch Gastroenterology and Bambini Pediatrics and looks forward to continued growth in the future. HealthlinkNY is confident that this new connection to the HIE will prove to be a significant tool for physicians as well as a powerful new asset for patients.
