The New York eHealth Collaborative (NYeC), the organization which operates the Statewide Health Information Network of New York (SHIN-NY), announced a partnership with New York City’s Interboro Regional Health Information Organization (RHIO).  The Interboro RHIO’s covers hospitals, trauma centers, long-term care facilities, diagnostic centers, and private practices within the City of New York.

The Interboro RHIO encompasses records from the NYC Health and Hospitals Corporation (NYCHHC) and its founding members include several HHC entities (Elmhurst Hospital Center, HHC Health & Home Care, MetroPlus, Queens Hospital Center, Woodhull Medical and Mental Health Center) along with New York Hospital Queens and Visiting Nurse Services of New York.  The NYCHHC is one of the nation’s largest public healthcare network, serving 1.4 million New Yorkers annually.

According to NYeC, the NYCHHC patients include some of the city’s most underserved and chronically ill, many of whom lack health insurance. Once the Interboro exchange connects to the SHIN-NY’s statewide network, its provider members will have better access to even more data.

 “The health information exchange goals of the Interboro RHIO and NYeC are well aligned with HHC’s goals of building robust care management/care coordination capabilities across care settings both within the NYCHHC network and with external partners,”  Alan Aviles, president and CEO of the NYCHHC, said in a statement.

This adds to SHIN-NY’s previously announced partnerships with three RHIOs in the New York City metropolitan area: BHIX (Brooklyn Health Information Exchange), eHealth Network of Long Island, and THINC(Taconic Health Information Network and Community), which serves the Hudson Valley Region.
