Continuing Connectivity and Adoption
HealtheConnections, as part of the SHIN-NY (Statewide Health Information Network of New York), will comply with policies for healthcare entities in New York State to adopt HIE services. Adoption requires participants to sign agreements stating that they will share, receive, and access data in the HIE. 

To continue to build upon the adoption process, HealtheConnections will be introducing new features and functions which will also align with Meaningful Use 2 requirements. Upcoming features include: 
  • myResults: Providers named on a report sent to the HIE can view the report online within the HIE
  • myAlerts: Routes, and supports subscription to, various notifications of patient status and events to providers based on pre-defined criteria and data found in messages. For example, patient alerts and notifications will be sent to subscribing providers or healthcare teams upon patient hospital admits, transfers, or discharges using the provider's Direct email account
  • CCD Exchange: Bi-directional patient data exchange of patient demographics, guarantor information, medications, allergies, problem lists, vitals, procedures, and immunizations
