Southern Tier HealthLink is now HealthlinkNY
Southern Tier HealthLink (STHL) has recently partnered
with the Taconic Health Information Network and Community
(THINC), another New York State regional health information
organization, to offer a unified health information exchange
for the region spanning the Hudson Valley, Catskills, and
Southern Tier of New York. As a Qualified Health IT Entity
(QE), HealthlinkNY (formally known as a Regional Health
Information Organization (RHIO) will maintain patient’s
electronic health records from participating healthcare
organizations and provider practices across the expansive
geographical region, consolidating them into more
centralized and consolidated records.
This merger between STHL and THINC will harness each QE’s individual strengths and combine them to transform and improve healthcare from the Southern Tier through the Hudson Valley. STHL has built a robust operational health information exchange network in the Southern Tier and will expand that technology into the Hudson Valley as part of HealthlinkNY. THINC has established a strong collaborative model for primary care transformation and population health improvement, which will broaden to include the Southern Tier with HealthlinkNY.
