Rochester RHIO Goes Live with Part 2 Data

Rochester RHIO reached a milestone recently when it launched Part 2 (SAMHSA) data exchange at the end of March. This includes specially protected substance use and behavioral health care information. With this data, authorized users and medical professionals have a more complete picture of patient health, and will be able to view this data immediately supporting better patient care and care transitions.

CEO Jill Eisenstein Appears on WXXI's Connections program

Recently, Rochester RHIO's President and CEO Jill Eisenstein appeared as a guest on WXXI's "Connections with Evan Dawson". The topic? Understanding the MOLST (Medical Orders for Life Sustaining Treatment) program. Jill spoke from personal experience about the benefits of the MOLST program for end-of-life care decisions. In 2013, her husband became critically ill, and MOLST allowed them to talk through what end-of-life care would look like for her husband. It also came into play when they needed it most.

Jill appeared alongside Dr. Patricia Bomba, M.D.M., expert and the Program Director for the MOLST program in New York State. Dr. Bomba is also the Vice President and Medical Director of Geriatrics at Excellus BlueCross and BlueShield.

To listen to their conversation on the radio, go to wxxinews.org . The conversation link can be shared as an educational tool to inform our community about the MOLST program.
