NYU Langone Health, the First to Exchange Images
through Healthix

Image as seen within the Healthix Portal

In July, NYU Langone Health became the first healthcare provider to make their radiology images available 
through Healthix. Now within the Healthix Portal, a single click allows providers to view tens of thousands of studies monthly, and compare full diagnostic quality images from the NYU PACs system, including historical images. This means, providers outside NYU Langone Health will be able to access patient images — speeding information to physicians who refer to NYU Radiology and eliminating the need for transferring images manually. Radiology images from 
Northwell Health and Maimonides Medical Center 
will be available through Healthix later this year. 

This effort was made possible with technical support from partners at eHealth Technologies and J2 Interactive. The initiative was part of a statewide incentive program funded by NYS DOH. 

New Patient-Focused and HIE Educational Materials Now Available

We have created print collateral, posters, videos and PowerPoint presentations that you can use to help educate staff, community partners and patients as to the vital role of health information exchange. The materials address the importance of giving consent, outlines who is exchanging data, what and how it is being exchanged and most importantly, highlights the success stories. If you would like to use any of these materials for outreach, we are happy to co-brand the information for your use.
