HealtheConnections’ health information exchange covers 26 counties in New York State, and surrounding states, supporting more than 11,000 physicians and the millions of patients they serve.
The name “HealtheConnections” represents our dedication to connect and engage healthcare providers, insurers, businesses, and consumers to implement services and initiatives that support New York State’s health information exchange and population health improvement agendas.
Through trusted collaboration with participants, stakeholders, and partners, we develop and deliver valued services, enabling improvements in health and healthcare delivery, resulting in healthier people, better care, and cost efficiencies.
who we serve
From medical treatment centers and case management to counseling services and specialty practices, these organizations play a critical role throughout a patient’s lifetime. Having access to the patient’s medical history enables better care.
Our goal is to connect the healthcare community so that patients like you are not tasked with transporting medical information, saving you from repeated tests, and allowing your provider to collaborate with other providers in real-time as necessary.
Our population health improvement objectives help people use data to address significant community health concerns. We engage and interact with healthcare and patient communities through various events, volunteer activities, and other charitable efforts.
