About this event:

Join NYC REACH as we partner with Healthix to discuss best practices for achieving and sustaining Patient-Centered Medical Home (PCMH) workflows using Healthix’s health information exchange tools.

The NYS PCMH program requires that all primary care practices seeking PCMH recognition in New York State connect to a Qualified Entity (QE), also known as a Regional Health Information Organization (RHIO). Healthix is the largest QE/RHIO in New York State. Practices and health centers that connect to Healthix are able to use an array of health information exchange tools in Healthix’s portal, including alerts when patients are admitted or discharged from the hospital and seen in the ED, access to medical record information from other healthcare providers, and more.

These important Healthix tools support a number of PCMH workflows. In fact, Healthix tools streamline key PCMH processes that previously, many practices find to be among the most time-consuming. Whether you are live on Healthix, currently implementing Healthix, or considering joining, join us to learn practical tips and workflows to use Healthix’s functionality to achieve and sustain PCMH.

Learning Objectives:

  • Provide key background information and vocabulary related to Health Information Exchange, Qualified Entities (QEs), and Regional Health Information Organizations (RHIOs), as well as on NCQA’s Patient-Centered Medical Home (PCMH) model
  • Describe integration points between PCMH requirements and Healthix tools
  • Identify opportunities to streamline your existing PCMH care coordination workflows by using Healthix
  • Discuss practical steps practices and health centers can take to ensure they are maximizing use of Healthix in their PCMH operations



The patient-centered medical home (PCMH) model supports primary care practices to provide patient-centric care, improving quality outcomes, and performing well under value-based care arrangements. New York State Department of Health (NYS DOH) has partnered with the National Committee on Quality Assurance (NCQA) to create New York State Patient-Centered Medical Home (NYS PCMH), a PCMH program designed specifically for New York State providers.
