ALBANY, N.Y. –

Hixny connected six new healthcare provider organizations to the community-wide health information exchange (HIE) during the month of January, further expanding the availability of patient records to the statewide healthcare community and to individual healthcare consumers.

The new connections are:

  • Children’s Health Home of Upstate New York (CHHUNY), a community-based pediatric and adolescent care management service operating in 54 upstate counties from its base in Webster, N.Y.
  • Clinton County ARC, a human services provider for individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities in Plattsburgh, N.Y.
