Collaboration with the largest HIE in NY will improve actionable data exchange within provider workflows
MISSISSAUGA, ON. – February 15, 2022 – PointClickCare Technologies, a leading healthcare technology platform enabling meaningful collaboration and access to real‐time insights at any stage of a patient’s journey, today announced it is expanding its network through the state of New York through a collaboration with Healthix, the largest Health Information Exchange (HIE) in the state of New York. Healthix participating hospitals, ACOs, and health plans bilaterally exchange critical information with providers at the point of care, in their existing workflows.
The collaboration, which is structured within the framework of New York State policy, combines Healthix’s data with PointClickCare’s platform to arm New York hospitals with real‐time insights to support high‐risk patients across the healthcare continuum. The goal is to close communication gaps across care settings to streamline care transitions, improve coordination, and reduce unnecessary length of stay and admissions.
“We are thrilled that our growing infrastructure can support patient outcomes by enabling hospital and health systems to better support communities across the state of New York and beyond. This growing relationship furthers our ultimate goal to grow our network of acute and post‐acute insights, not only in New York, but across all fifty states, in order to streamline care transitions and provide necessary information to providers within their EHR workflows.”
Ben Zaniello, MD, MPH, Chief Medical Officer, PointClickCare
