New York City and Long Island encompass a vast and richly diverse population that proves invaluable to research. Healthix works with respected leaders of the healthcare community to support research in medical informatics, population and public health and clinical domains. Healthix leverages data in the HIE to advance research aimed at improving health.
Healthix exchanges data on more than 17 million patients from New York City and Long Island across more than 6,100 facilities including large health systems, community health centers, behavioral health organizations, physician practices and more. As the breadth and depth of data in Healthix grows, we are expanding our capabilities to support new and innovative use cases, including clinical and population health research.
