Westchester Medical Center and St. Joseph's Go Live with ADT Feeds

December 10th, 2015 - The Valhalla campus of Westchester Medical Center and St. Joseph’s Medical Center in Yonkers both went live with a new Admission, Discharge and Transfer (ADT) feed to the HealthlinkNY Health Information Exchange (HIE.) The new ADT feed is a major step toward full digital integration for many large regional medical centers. With this new connection, data on the admission, transfer, or discharge of patients is available electronically to all practices connected to the HealthlinkNY HIE.

This new data feed is of particular importance for patients who require specialized care from providers at many locations. The feed deposits basic data about patients who visit Westchester Medical Center and St. Joseph’s, meaning their other connected care providers can see these visits. It allows for real time updates regarding a patient’s care status, it also provides an overview of the treatments the patient has received up to that point regardless of location.
