- Syndromic Surveillance – HealtheConnections sends daily files to NYS on behalf of several hospitals to report chief complaints from patients that enter the emergency department.
- Statewide Patient Record Lookup (sPRL) – With sPRL, patient information can be queried securely across all New York State RHIOs. Healthcare providers can retrieve individual patient records from across the network once they receive patient consent.
Federal Government Gateways
- Veterans Administration – Through the external document search function within Patient Lookup, civilian healthcare providers can query the VA system to view treatment their patient received at any VA facility within the United States. Military providers can also view electronic patient records within the HIE. Access to the VA’s EHR database allows for better care coordination between military and civilian providers. The VA requires consent from the veteran to release their information, and HealtheConnections requires consent for the practices to receive the information. HealtheConnections is one of 20 HIEs in the country with the ability to share records with the VA Click here to view the VA consent form.
