Last year, Healthix partnerships created new revenue streams and reinforced the value proposition with our services across a broad spectrum of stakeholders.
Our newly launched Vendor Interoperability Program (VIP) supports vendors seeking to simplify interoperability with healthcare providers. Through secure connections with Healthix and in alignment of Healthix privacy policies, vendors can eliminate the expense and need to build and maintain costly aggregation platforms.
In 2019, Healthix received funding of $1.1 million for competitive and non-competitive grants offered through NYeC.
Finally, Healthix has supported a significant grant application in partnership with the Primary Care Development Corporation (PCDC). If awarded, PCDC will receive funds from CMS to leverage the HIE for practice transformation guidance and implement improvements of clinical quality outcomes.
Our Participants expressed interest in additional training and understanding of HIE, so last fall Healthix launched a Chat-N-Learn Series. These trainings provided useful tips for retrieving clinical data through the Healthix Portal and helped inform users about system changes. Topics included SMART Alerts, best practices, and tips for generating CCDs and C-CDAs. Participating organizations were also given an opportunity to share their stories and best practices. Based on the popularity of these events, Healthix is planning a full schedule of events in 2020.
“We're collaborating with our clinicians and social service agencies to deliver the
they want, in the way
they want it, to deliver the care they must.”

During an all-day session last March with a dozen Participants, Healthix received key product insights. The invaluable feedback served as an idea incubator to help Healthix develop new data services and improve existing ones. The day concluded with three winning concepts for which Healthix developed pilot projects and is currently reviewing the data to determine next steps.
Recognizing that local legislators have their fingers on the collective pulse of the Greater New York community, Healthix set out to connect with key leaders last summer and fall to learn how we might shape our future plans and collaborations around the most salient concerns of constituents. Discussions with top staff at borough president offices and with AIDS/HIV advocates resulted in new relationships and insights that are influencing our thoughts about the best path forward in 2020. This feedback is essential to the development of our future services.
