You’re not obligated to grant consent. But in an emergency, you may be glad you did.
During those frightening times when you may not able to speak for yourself, Healthix helps doctors and nurses access the information they need at the point of care to make an informed decision on the course of treatment. Accessing your medical history through Healthix can save time and lead to faster more appropriate decision making that could save your life.
Other advantages of granting consent to your health providers:
Improved quality of care and increased safety
Reduced likelihood of repeated diagnostic tests and labs
Reduced likelihood of errors involving adverse drug interactions and allergic reactions
Expedited communication between your doctors and other caregivers
Streamlined care coordination
With your consent, clinicians can:
Access your comprehensive data, such as medications, lab results and diagnostic reports
Treat you more effectively because they have a more comprehensive view of your medical history, past treatments and medications
Better consult and collaborate with your other health providers to coordinate services
Use clinical data, from many sources across New York State, to create a patient-centered view of your medical needs
