Brooklyn RHIO Links Patient Records

The Brooklyn Health Information Exchange (BHIX), a not-for-profit regional health information organization in New York, has selected Initiate Patient

The Brooklyn Health Information Exchange (BHIX), a not-for-profit regional health information organization in New York, has selected Initiate Patient software from Chicago’s Initiate Systems Inc., as the foundational technology for locating, linking and matching of patient records.

Initiate’s technology will help BHIX create the foundational master person index, enabling patient identity resolution and linking of patients across multiple sources of data, Initiate says. Once a patient is uniquely identified and linked, Initiate Patient will also facilitate a portal application and record locator service to search and establish context on a patient, the company says. Care teams will thus share a single, accurate view of any patient participating in BHIX.

BHIX is comprised of several healthcare provider and payer organizations in New York. The RHIO is expected to be operating by late July 2008.
