Rochester RHIO Annual Report wins big at PRism Awards!


Award Winning Annual Report 2016 2

On June 15, the 2016 anniversary edition of the Rochester RHIO Annual Report won a 2017 PRism Award for best not-for-profit, annual report. A special thank you goes out to Aimee Lewis and McDougall Communications for leading the project! Awards were given out by PRSA Rochester.

 

Process change: How to turn off paper results delivery

In an effort to improve our overall users’ satisfaction, we are changing our handling process with regards to the paper results that our participants receive on an ongoing basis. Effective July 1, 2017, if your organization chooses to disable paper results delivery, then you, or someone whom you appoint from your team, will need to reach out to the data source directly. The Rochester RHIO will no longer provide an intermediary service to turn paper results off or on, and therefore, will no longer be contacting data sources for this particular change.

This change simplifies the handling process as some of our participants use Rochester RHIO to facilitate these changes while others reach out to data sources directly. Contact information is posted on the Data Sources page. Questions? Contact your Deployment Coordinator, or any member of the Deployment team at 1-877-865-7446 (RHIO), or email info@grrhio.org.

Rochester RHIO CEO Jill Eisenstein, left, spoke at the Annual Conference for NYHIMA (New York Health Information Management Association) on June 6 in Rochester. Eisenstein was warmly welcomed and spoke on “Interconnectivity in NYS: Community HIEs support statewide health information exchange.” She discussed how RHIOs have played a critical role in New York State health information exchange for 10 years, and how they are the foundation of the SHIN-NY. She also briefly discussed potential changes to the state’s patient consent model.

In addition, Gloria Hitchcock, right, RHIO’s Director of Care Improvement Initiatives, contributed to a discussion at a Digital Rochester event on June 13 called “Improving Transitions of Care with Innovative Techniques and Technology.” Hitchcock also spoke at Letchworth State Park (June 19) on how the RHIO can support regional emergency preparedness and business continuity planning.
