Quarterly Newsletter
New York State Executive
Order for Clinical Laboratories
On December 13, 2020, the Governor issued an Executive Order which included a mandate that all clinical laboratories with more than 25 employees must contribute data to an HIE through the Statewide Health Information Network of New York (SHIN-NY). The timeline for this is 60 days.

We are working closely with the NYS Department of Health to finalize rollout and prioritization details as quickly as possible to assist affected organizations in a timely manner. At this time, the NYS Department of Health is best suited to answer further questions and can be reached at SHIN-NY@health.gov.ny.

It’s All About the Data

This article was recently published in The New York Beat, a newsletter put out by the New York Medical Group Management Association (NYMGMA), about the value of community-wide data at the point of care, for patient population health, and quality programs.
