Founded in 2006 by health care leaders, the goal of NYeC is that no patient, wherever they may need treatment within the State of New York, is ever without fast, secure, accurate, and accessible information.

“Dr. Bennett is joining our board at a very exciting time, not only for NYeC but for the advancement of health IT in the state.
