Participant organizations will be allowed to deploy patient data from Healthix and the SHIN-NY within their own Patient Portal

Patients with access to their personal health information are better positioned to take an active role in their own care and improve their health. Patient portals can play a key role by providing patients with their own medical data, but currently patients must visit multiple patient portals for each and every provider they visit — leading to a fragmented and time consuming process. For this reason, in Q4, Healthix will enable participating organizations to provide a comprehensive summary of a patient’s statewide health information. To govern the release of data for this purpose, Healthix has added a new Patient Portal Policy. Read More (page 44)  Interested in Patient data for your portal? Contact Us at

PPS Partners begin Healthix integration; Providers take first steps to link to HIE
The Staten Island Performing Provider System, LLC has begun to integrate their PPS partners with Healthix. They are one of nine PPS Leads in our region that Healthix will support under the DSRIP Program.  We recently welcomed Advocate Community Providers PPS (ACP PPS) to our network. With hundreds of physician and group practices spanning New York City, Healthix looks forward to collaborating with ACP PPS leadership to support their physicians and the patients they serve. These are the first steps in an exciting process of connecting hundreds of PPS partners to the SHIN-NY. Interested in a demonstration of how Healthix can support your DSRIP efforts?  Contact

Frequent ED Notifications:

Patients who repeatedly seek care in New York City’s emergency rooms can now be identified and managed more effectively with the aid of health information exchange. Sometimes these patients have been to the ED 3-4-5 times within a 30-day period. With patient consent, Healthix is now able to send clinical event notifications (CENs) to clinicians and care managers when a patient registers at their emergency room. Intervention at the point of care helps to support better care coordination for these patients. The real-time CEN service,  was piloted in the ED at the Mount Sinai School of Medicine
(Learn More), and is now available to all Healthix participant organizations.


Auditor Tool: Healthix participant organizations can now audit their users more easily through a tool on the portal. The participant’s auditor may see which of its users have accessed which patient records (time, date, etc.).

Staten Island PPS reaps state’s praise


— Crain’s Health Pulse (Aug. 5) 

While all of the state’s performing provider systems have 
met most of their DSRIP milestones so far, the Staten Island PPS is one of the most advanced,” said New York Medicaid Director Jason Helgerson. He went on to say that The Staten Island Network has already linked electronic health records and state Medicaid claims data to create a 360 view of the Medicaid population, and was the first to do a comprehensive inventory of health-care workforce, above and beyond what was mandated.
