“Reaching 1,000 participant locations is a significant milestone for Hixny,” said Mark McKinney, CEO of Hixny. “Most gratifying is the increasing diversity of our membership.

Hixny, which provides progressive population health solutions to the Capital Region, Northern New York and the Mohawk Valley, has surpassed 1,000 participant locations.

Hixny connects every non-government hospital in its 19-county region, as well as 70 percent of physician practices and more than 65 percent of specialists, to put vital patient information at the fingertips of providers in real time. In recent months, the collaborative has grown to include behavioral healthcare facilities, community-based organizations, telemedicine services and other providers whose participation is critical to Hixny’s mission of enabling progressive population health.

Now there are more than 1,000 locations within the region where electronic patient data can be safely and securely collected and accessed, including hospital emergency departments, physician offices, imaging centers, clinics and pharmacies, among others. Connecting more sites where patient encounters take place improves the depth and breadth of data, which is accessed by healthcare professionals to provide a 360-degree view of even the most complex patients.

“Reaching 1,000 participant locations is a significant milestone for Hixny,” said Mark McKinney, CEO of Hixny. “Most gratifying is the increasing diversity of our membership. It is not just about hospitals and physicians, it’s about the entire, broader healthcare community—specialists, behavioral health facilities, imaging centers and so many others coalescing around a single network.”

Although the majority of the participant locations are within the Hixny region, some Hixny members have locations outside the 19 counties, and these locations are included in the total. In addition, Hixny is connected as a member of the Statewide Health Information Network for New York (SHIN-NY), which enables patient data to be securely shared throughout New York State.

Hixny empowers modern healthcare by improving the way in which the healthcare community and patients access, analyze and collaboratively act upon patient-specific information. A not-for-profit based in Albany, NY, Hixny is a recognized national leader in population health management support.
