Healthix links with Northwell Health, Mount Sinai HIEs

Healthix — a public health information exchange based in New York City — integrated two private HIEs, operated by New Hyde Park, N.Y.-based Northwell Health and New York City-based Mount Sinai Health System.

Healthix aggregates patient data — including lab results, immunization records and allergy lists — from healthcare organizations throughout New York City and Long Island, N.Y.  Through the two new integrations, real-time clinical data generated by Northwell and Mount Sinai will become available to all other organizations in the Healthix network. All three HIEs are built on InterSystems HealthShare, an information exchange platform.

Healthix's network connects almost 1,500 facilities, including hospitals, health plans, physician practices and behavioral health facilities, among others.
