Health Information Technology

The ability to deliver timely and effective health care often depends on having reliable, current information about a patient’s medical history. Record keeping and information sharing are critical components in preventive care, and empower individuals and medical professionals to better manage existing medical conditions. Health information technology provides medical professionals and individuals with access to pertinent information, leading to better health care outcomes and potential cost savings.

NYSHealth is supporting a variety of programs working to implement new health information technology. Learn more about some of these initiatives:
