Basset Healthcare Network has joined Hixny, a Regional Health Information Organization (RHIO).
As a new member of Hixny, Bassett Healthcare’s six hospitals are now connected to Hixny’s Health Information Exchange, which allows for the secure sharing of medical information across healthcare organizations.
This connect will now enable Bassett Healthcare’s patients to provide their consent so their providers can quickly and securely access the electronic medical records, to save time and better coordinate their care.
Bassett Healthcare is a sub-network of the NewYork Presbyterian Healthcare System.
Hixny is one of ten non-profit, RHIO’s in the state of New York. It serves more than 1.6 million customers in the Greater Capital Region and Northern New York.
