NEW YORK, NY, February 22, 2021—New York’s largest health information exchange, Healthix, has completed twenty laboratory connections in just a few short weeks, with twenty-seven in line to go live soon. This work is in accordance with the executive order of New York Governor Andrew Cuomo in response to COVID-19.
As stated by Cuomo in his executive order:
Within 60 days of this Order, all clinical laboratories permitted by the Department of Health pursuant to Article 5, Title 5 of the Public Health Law, and having more than 25 employees, must become qualified entity participants and connect to the SHIN-NY through a qualified entity, and must allow private and secure bi-directional access to patient information by other qualified entity participants authorized by law to access such patient information, pursuant to Part 300 of Title 10 of the NYCRR. (11.12.20)
