HealthlinkNY Powered by HealtheConnections offers Direct Mail services that allow providers to communicate via simple and secure email. Providers can send health information directly to known, trusted recipients over the Internet. Direct Mail also offers a Provider Directory to help find contact information for the providers and organizations that use the HealthlinkNY Health Information Exchange.
Direct Mail offers the user a specialized type of secure email account. Direct Mail is designed to be HIPAA compliant while still allowing quick and easy transmission of patient data between providers. Direct Mail can help reduce fax usage in addition to time spent calling and waiting for patient test results between participating organizations. This benefits both patients and providers by improving the exchange of health information, making it easier, faster, more secure, and less expensive. Direct Mail empowers clinicians with HIPAA compliant communication and collaborating options, such as sending and receiving referrals for improved coordination of care.
