New York State created the Statewide Health Information Network for New York (SHIN-NY) to allow the electronic exchange of clinical information and connect healthcare professionals statewide.
The SHIN-NY connects eight regional networks, or Qualified Entities (QEs), that allow participating healthcare professionals, with patient consent, to quickly access electronic health information and securely exchange data statewide.
The regional networks enroll participants within their community, including those from hospitals, clinics, FQHCs, home care agencies, payers, and ambulatory practices, among others, so they can access and exchange electronic health information with any other participant in their region.
The network enables collaboration and coordination of care to improve patient outcomes, reduce unnecessary and avoidable tests and procedures, and lower costs.
