Three health information technology vendor acquisitions and a merger of two New York City health information exchanges have been completed in recent days:

*The Brooklyn Health Information Exchange and Healthix Inc., two HIEs serving the greater New York City Region, have completed a merger agreement reached in June 2013. The combined entity retains the Healthix name and will serve more than 9 million patients and 100 participating organizations representing 400 locations throughout New York City and Long Island. Tom Check remains Healthix president and CEO, and Brooklyn HIE leader Irene Koch will serve as executive vice president and general counsel. The merger follows an agreement in 2012 for both HIEs to have the New York eHealth Collaborative operate their technology platforms, as part of an effort to have the State Health Information Network of New York become more harmonized.
