Buffalo, NY (PRWEB) April 25, 2013
Donald Lee, Director of Software Development for Algonquin Studios, has been selected as a member of the judging panel for the Patient Portal for New Yorkers Design Challenge being held by the New York eHealth Collaborative (NYeC) on May 2, 2013.
The NYeC is looking to provide 19.5 million New Yorkers with safe and secure access to their records through the statewide health information exchange via an online portal, essentially a website where New Yorkers will be able to log in and access their health data. In order to design the best possible and most user-friendly portal interface, the NYeC launched the Patient Portal for New Yorkers Design Challenge, asking the country’s talented developers and designers to create innovative prototypes that showcase the information that can be made available to patients accessing the statewide health information exchange. The public was offered a say in selecting top finalists during a public voting phase that took place from April 13 – 23, 2013.
The Patient Portal for New Yorkers Design Challenge will culminate in two ‘Demo Days’ taking place in New York City, on April 30th, and Buffalo, on May 2nd, that will include live presentations by the 10 finalists chosen during the public voting phase. The public is also invited to attend these demonstrations to view presentations from the finalists and participate in a networking session with the designers, judges, and members of other NYS Regional Health Information Organizations (RHIOs).
Lee was recommended for his role as a judge for the contest by the leadership at HEALTHeLINK, the Western New York Clinical Information Exchange. He joins other panel members from Catholic Medical Partners and Medaille College.
