Healthix Research Exchange


Announcing Healthix De-identified Data Warehouse for Research Opportunities

Healthix stands ready to support researchers with aggregated data of more than 20 million patients from across the New York region. Recently, with the support of the city’s largest public health agency, Healthix has built a de-identified data warehouse, which was deployed in mid July 2023.  The data spans over 15 years, since the inception of New York State HIEs in 2005.

Researchers interested in accessing de-identified data for research studies are required to submit a Healthix research application. Following a review and approval process by Healthix Research Committee and Board of Directors, researchers will be notified.
