While the tools and services Hixny provides to organizations and individuals make for a complex ecosystem, the heart of our efforts is simple. We allow healthcare to come together. Individuals, healthcare providers and organizations like hospitals and health plans, record various types of information—in digital filing cabinets. Hixny connects all of this information to one another online, using industry-leading security practices to protect privacy. By connecting with similar networks across the state, Hixny provides its users with access to health information generated throughout New York.

The end result is that health records aren’t tied to a single physical location anymore. Instead, a doctor in Plattsburgh can log in to her system and pull up her patient’s emergency department summary from a doctor in Ithaca. No waiting. No hassles.

Not only does that allow health professionals to deliver better quality of care with greater patient satisfaction at lower costs, but it also allows individuals to view their own records from home and it enables our region to better understand the health of our general population.

Our History

Hixny got its start when Capital District health executives began investigating the possibility of sharing information way back in 1999. We’ve grown steadily—and at the cutting edge of our industry—ever since. Today, Hixny is recognized as a national leader in the advancement of health information technology and data exchange.
