Get Hooked Up! Link to HealthLink Improves Coordination

MHVC recognizes 23 partners who have bidirectional connections. Connecting to a Qualified Entity (QE), also known as a Regional Health Information Organization (RHIO), helps providers deliver better-coordinated care to their patients by providing quick and easy access to the information that is needed from other providers outside of one’s healthcare organization. The goal of HealthlinkNY (HLNY) is to make sure that information is available when and where it is needed across the Hudson Valley. Connection to and utilization of data made available on the QE is essential in managing transitions of care.

RHIO connectivity is essential to MHVC’s network to ensure development of an integrated delivery system and is a critical factor in our clinical interoperability strategy. A bi-directional connection is one where an organization is contributing their patients records up to the QE as well as accessing to see health information available from other organizations. The operational value allows a better insight into a patient’s medical record to coordinate care. We want to recognize our 23 contracted partners that already have established a bi-directional connection to HLNY. If you are interested in learning more and moving toward connection, please contact Senior Account Manager, Costanzo Feo, at HealthlinkNY.
