New York Seeks Input on Plan for Statewide Health Information Exchange; Register Now for October 16 Webinar for HANYS Members
The New York eHealth Collaborative (NYeC), its Board of Directors, and the New York State Department of Health (NYS DOH), are soliciting input on revisions to the NYS Policy and Governance Model for Statewide Health Information Exchange (HIE) through October 21, 2011. The draft document outlining the new governance model may be accessed on NYeC's Web site.
NYeC will host a webinar for HANYS' members on Wednesday, October 19, from 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. to review the proposed HIE governance model, answer questions, and receive member feedback. Use the following link to register for the Webinar.
The governance model addresses the plan to establish the Statewide Health Information Network for New York (SHIN-NY), the building of statewide shared services, such as a master-provider index, and how it will affect hospitals and health systems in the state.
Please take time to review the draft governance model and join us on the October 19 to participate in the Webinar. Please contact Susan Van Meter with your perspective on the draft as HANYS will be submitting comments to NYeC regarding the governance model and would benefit from your analysis of the proposal.
