5 Myths About the HIE

1. You need an EMR to participate
    Many services are available without needing an EMR
2. It costs money to join
    Participation is FREE!
3. There is not enough data for it to be useful
    42 data sources send patient data to the HIE
4. Sharing data is not easy
    The Secure Messaging service allows secure exchange of PHI data between providers
5. Patient data can be viewed by anyone
    Patients must give their consent before their records can be viewed, and only certain users have access to view PHI data

PHI Important Reminder

Personal Health Information, or PHI, should only be shared with trusted recipients through secure and safe messaging systems. HealtheConnections Support asks that you do not send PHI over non-secure email systems. 

HealtheConnections Secure Messaging allows a safe platform to exchange PHI data with other providers. Please be sure to utilize this service. Contact our Provider Engagement team today to get started! (315) 671-2241 x310 

If you would like to make a support request that includes PHI data (such as a Patient Record Merge), fax these requests to the attention of HealtheConnections Support at: (315) 407-0053

HealtheConnections in the Community

This spring, the American Heart Association will hold their annual Heart Walk on Saturday, March 22 to raise money and awareness for heart disease. HealtheConnections has stepped up as a sponsor for this year's event, which is being held at the SRC Arena at the Onondaga Community College campus. 

Dr. David Page, of Family Care Medical Group and a HealtheConnections Board Member, and Rob Hack, Executive Director at HealtheConnections, are serving on the Executive Leadership Team for this year's walk.

The HealtheConnections team is working to collect donations to reach our goal of $5,000 for the American Heart Association. Please visit our team page (link below) to donate or for more information on how you can create your own team!
