Hopefully you enjoyed the update on Patent Portals by Dr. Steven Lyndaker and Liza Darou. If you did not see it or want to watch it again, you can click here to see a recorded version online.
Below are some more resources on Patient Portals and what NY is working on to leverage Health Information Technology, or HIT to support Patient-Centered care.
The Statewide Health Information Network of New York (SHIN-NY) is a network of information transmitted between users. Like the internet, as more users connect, it grows, evolves, and becomes more secure, efficient, and easy to use. There is a nice YouTube Video on the main page.
What Is The Portal? You already do so many things online. You manage your finances safely and conveniently, network with friends and colleagues, plan your vacations, apply for jobs, college, and more. Why can’t you get all of your healthcare records online? Soon you can. At the click of a button, just like you log into your banking website now, you’ll be able to visit the Patient Portal for New Yorkers website and access the most important records you have, whenever you need them. There is a nice Vimeo Video on the main page. Also, you can click here to see What Doctors & Patients are Saying, featuring our own Nurse Informaticist, Liza Darou.
