What is Healthix?
Healthix is a public health information exchange (HIE or RHIO) funded by New York State. We electronically collect and consolidate patient health records from +6,000 healthcare providers in New York City and Long Island, providing the clinical information to treating clinicians at the point-of-care.
Why Join Healthix?
Healthix can improve health outcomes and quality of care by assisting in better care coordination and the management of chronically ill patients. With Healthix, you can:
- Look up a patient’s data
from encounters to past history, labs and more
for patient's admissions/discharges from an ED, hospital or skilled nursing facility
Prepare for value-based payments
by engaging in the electronic communication requirement of New York State Transformation Programs like DSRIP or PCMH
What Action is Needed?
All you need to do is review and sign a Healthix Participation Agreement. We do the rest over the phone or online. You don’t need to engage costly technical support on your end.
