The Adirondack Regional Community Health Information Exchange (ARCHIE), based out of Albany, N.Y., will bring its operational resources to the Health Information Xchange of New York (HIXNY). ARCHIE was founded by Adirondack Medicine Incorporated, an independent physicians association (IPA) and Glens Falls Hospital. The staff members at ARCHIE, including Executive Director Dirk Rittenhouse, Director of Client Relations Heather O’Conner and Technical Project Manager Robin Smith have joined the HIXNY staff.

ARCHIE will have a seat on the HIXNY Board of Directors with the ARCHIE representative still to be determined. ARCHIE is the regional health information organization that was created for the Adirondack region and is based in Glens Falls. Similar to HIXNY, ARCHIE provides safe and secure patient data that is shared by providers. This data includes patient demographics, lab results, radiology and other transcribed reports, medications, and allergies among other information.

Scott Momrow, HIXNY Vice President, said in a statement that it was clear that the time to create a single shared platform among providers in the same geography was now. He said HIXNY has been very involved in the Adirondack region, including our participation in the Adirondack Medical Home initiative so this was a logical next step to grow and enhance the health information exchange for the region.
