San Diego-based MedLink, a provider of health information technology solutions to the medical community announced the formation of the New York Health Information Network as a collaboration with Thrasys Inc. (San Francisco), a provider of next-generation health information technology and solutions. The New York Health Information Network (NYHIN) will be the first of many regional health information networks to be deployed by MedLink and Thrasys under a Connected Healthcare initiative launched by the two companies earlier this year. Connected Healthcare and regional health information networks will enable communities of physicians, patients, service centers, and health plans to coordinate care, manage costs, increase revenues, improve outcomes and enhance patient experience.

The New York Health Information Network will provide interoperability, applications, and services using the cloud-based SyntraNet connected healthcare platform from Thrasys. SyntraNet provides an open foundation for highly scalable collaborative healthcare networks. The New York Health Information Network will implement a health information exchange to meet interoperability requirements for meaningful use and deliver a range of applications and services: electronic health records, practice management services, e-prescribing, group purchasing, insurance and eligibility verification, remote charge capture, physician quality reporting, patient portals, and services to enable accountable care organizations and patient medical homes.

Get the latest information on Health IT and attend other valuable sessions at this two-day Summit providing healthcare leaders with educational content, insightful debate and dialogue on the future of healthcare and technology.
