Healthix, New York Care Information Gateway (NYCIG), Health Information Exchanges

Healthix and NYCIG, two of New York’s leading public health information exchanges (HIEs), announced they are a merged organization. The new entity will retain the Healthix name and Todd M. Rogow, President & CEO, will continue in that role. Nick VanDuyne, the current CEO at NYCIG, will join Healthix as Senior Vice President and Chief Information Officer. The merger further increases Healthix’ capacity to serve the healthcare community across New York CityLong Island, and New York State. Key goals for the organization include a vast expansion of available data, access to health information for over 18,000 clinicians and greater operating efficiencies. Healthix’ position as the largest public health information exchange in the nation — and one of the most robust — is reinforced with this merger.

“Healthix is the definitive source for real-time, actionable data in our region,” said Mr. Rogow. “The combined organization offers greater benefits to thousands of providers and patients, enabling access to an even richer pipeline of clinical data while maintaining the highest standards of privacy and security.”

The organization will be governed by a board of directors led by Dr. David I. Cohen who was elected as the board’s new chair last month. “The next phase of our work will be devoted to enhancing the value of clinical data exchange to meet the specific objectives of our Participants,” said Dr. Cohen. “Our goal is not simply to increase the volume of data, but rather to use data to improve the health of individuals and communities and to manage care efficiently and effectively.”
