New York State Requirement
All licensed ASCs must connect to an HIE by
By March 1, 2018, all New York licensed ASCs will be required to participate in the State Health Information Network of New York (“SHIN-NY). The SHIN-NY is a statewide platform that allows participants to exchange information about patients throughout the state. The SHIN-NY describes itself as a “Network of Networks” because its links eight regional Qualified Entities (that you might think of as local HIEs or RHIOs) with each other, thereby allowing the information exchange throughout New York state.
- How ASCs can fulfill their legal obligations to participate in the SHIN-NY (e.g., how to join a Qualified Entity
- The technical considerations behind such participation
- Recommendations to overcome initial challenges of health information exchange
- Opportunities offered by the SHIN-NY
All ASC Administrators, IT staff and owners would benefit from this webinar.
