Spring Cleaning: User Email Addresses

As part of HealtheConnections’ ongoing efforts to make improvements, we will be working with RHIO Administrators to clean up user email addresses. This means that each authorized user will be required to have their own unique email address. In the past, we allowed the same email address–typically, the RHIO Administrator’s email–to be used for multiple users, so this will no longer be accepted on AU forms. It is preferable that each user have a business email; however, personal email addresses (e.g., gmail, yahoo) will be allowed.

If you know that you are currently assigned an email address that is not unique to you, get your spring cleaning started early! Give us a call at 315.671.2241 x5 or email support@healtheconnections.org with your own email address to request the change and we will update your HealtheConnections’ user account.

Providers can access and share clinical images easier than ever with the Transfer-to-PACS (TTP) solution offered through HealtheConnections.

The Central New York HIE has been developing resources for healthcare providers to share medical images more efficiently throughout the region since 2010. We’re empowering providers to view diagnostic-quality medical images when and where they are needed with a single click, anywhere, anytime.
