“We are fortunate to have Taiymoor join our team,” said Mark McKinney, CEO of Hixny. “He brings significant leadership experience in the healthcare industry as well as keen operational skills."

Hixny, which provides progressive population health solutions to the Capital Region, Northern New York and the Mohawk Valley, has named Taiymoor Naqi to the newly-created position of Privacy and Security Officer.

Naqi’s responsibilities will focus on reviewing and, in some cases, establishing new security protocols for the organization. He will be working closely with Hixny’s operations, account services and technology teams to recommend and improve processes which will increase security and decrease potential risk. Naqi holds both a law degree and an MBA in business administration.

“We are fortunate to have Taiymoor join our team,” said Mark McKinney, CEO of Hixny. “He brings significant leadership experience in the healthcare industry as well as keen operational skills. As Hixny continues to grow in the number of participants we serve, in the depth and breadth of data which is being accessed, and in the number of healthcare professionals and patients who safely and securely access this data, this position became a necessity and Taiymoor is the perfect person for the job.”

Hixny currently serves more than 975 participating locations, including hospitals, physician practices, nursing homes, clinics and pharmacists, and more than 1.6 million patients in a 19 county region bordering Pennsylvania, Massachusetts, Connecticut, Vermont and Canada. It is one of eight Qualified Entities that link to the Statewide Health Information Network for New York (SHIN-NY). By delivering vital electronic medical records at the point of care, and providing a wide range of tools and services which make care delivery more efficient, Hixny is supporting care coordination and reducing healthcare costs in our region.

“Health information and data are at the heart of what we do here at Hixny,” Naqi said. “The security of this data is critical to our success and credibility. It is my responsibility to make sure we remain vigilant in protecting that data and ensuring full regulatory compliance. I am looking forward to both the challenge and the opportunity that come along with that.”

Naqi joins Hixny from CareCentrix, a third-party administrator in Hartford, Connecticut. While at CareCentrix, Naqi directly managed a large network of healthcare providers for various payers. Immediately prior to that, he was an Operations Manager/Project Manager for Premier Health, a six-hospital, integrated health care system in southwestern Ohio.
