New York-Presbyterian Hospital (NYP) of New York has introduced a new electronic personal health record to enable patients to access their medical information. Named MyNYP.org, the new PHR is available to the patient at no charge, and runs on Microsoft’s (Redmond, Wash.) next generation Amalga Unified Intelligence System (UIS) and HealthVault.

Microsoft says the enterprise data aggregation platform enables hospitals to unlock patient data stored in myriad systems and make it accessible to every authorized member of the team inside and beyond the hospital — including the patient.

Using Microsoft Amalga, NYP is able to to aggregate a wide range of patient data from multiple silos — including EKG, Echo and surgery reports, as well as discharge instructions medications — and send it, using the CCR standard, to the patient’s personal HealthVault record accessible via the new patient portal.

NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital, based in New York City, is the nation’s largest not-for-profit, non-sectarian hospital, with 2,242 beds. The Hospital has nearly 2 million inpatient and outpatient visits in a year, including more than 230,000 visits to its emergency departments — more than any other area hospital.
