New York State lawmakers have approved $45 million in 2015-16 funding for the state’s health data exchange—the Statewide Health Information Network of New York (SHIN-NY)—which aids providers and patients in accessing data from EHRs throughout the state.

The funding for the SHIN-NY will also help to make a core set of standard services available to all participants. These services will allow physicians to look up individual patient records through a search engine, exchange secure messages with other physicians, and receive alerts when their patients have an important event such as entering an emergency room or being discharged from a hospital.
