MedAllies will manage the NYS DIRECT Solution

NY continues to be at forefront of Health Information Technology.
Congratulations to Dr John Blair and his team. SV

The New York eHealth Collaborative (NYeC) has chosen MedAllies to operate the "Direct Solution" on the Statewide Health Information Network of New York (SHIN-NY). Similar to a highly secure email, Direct allows healthcare providers to seamlessly send data from one provider directly to another who is caring for the same patient.

The Direct Solution is one of three services that will be offered statewide via the SHIN-NY. The others are Patient Record Look-Up and Alerts. Direct operates like a highly secure email, whereas Patient Record Look-Up functions like
a highly secure search engine, allowing only those healthcare providers a patient has consented for to access their health information. Alerts allows providers to subscribe to a function that alerts them when data is posted about their patients. For example, it would let a primary care provider know his or her patient has just been admitted to an emergency department.
