Dec 07, 2018




HealthlinkNY and HealtheConnections are collaborating to increase the value of the Health Information Exchange (HIE), bringing enhanced services and technology to more provider communities.

HealthlinkNY will migrate its current HIE interface to HealtheConnections’ feature-rich platform to give you improved functionality and services.

Here are the top five features coming with the platform upgrade:

  1. Ability to Filter Data – See the parts of the record that are relevant and important to you.
  2. Access to State and Federal Data – Patient medical records statewide medical records via the SHIN-NY, New York State Immunization Information System (NYSIIS), Veterans Administration (VA), and Department of Defense (DoD) will be accessible.
  3.  Advanced Alerting Capabilities – Customized alerting options are tailored to the way you work. Receive notifications based on a suite of criteria, including specific physicians, sites, and patients.
  4.  Access to Minor Information Birth – 18 Years – After consent is granted, a provider can access the health records of a minor from birth to 18 years old. This includes the ability to view records for minor-consented services.
  5. Use HIE Analytics to Make Data-Driven Decisions – New tools will allow that extraction, reporting, and visualization of database content in a meaningful way. Additionally, the HIE can be your resources for value-based payments and quality measurements to realize cost efficiencies and improve quality outcomes.


And, these are just the top 5 in our opinion! There are so many more. Enhanced Imaging, reliable results routing, and access to patient records from HealtheConnections region are just a few more.

We are looking forward to bringing these enhanced features to our participants. Want to learn more about the new features that will be available once HealthlinkNY moves to HealtheConnections’ platform? Contact your account manager or email info@healthlinkny.local.
