Hixny began in 1999, when a group of healthcare collaborators and competitors came together to improve care in the greater Capital Region following the introduction of the federal Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA).

Through mergers, expansions and restructurings, Hixny has become one of the nation’s most successful and ground-breaking health information networks (HINs) that brings healthcare together. Ours is an ongoing story of collaboration, evolution and innovation to drive better care and lower costs with one-point access to every person’s healthcare record.

Hixny is eastern New York and beyond.

Connecting Records Statewide

We securely support the flow of electronic health information through the Statewide Health Information Network for New York (SHIN-NY, pronounced “SHY-nee”), which is overseen by the New York State Department of Health through the New York eHealth Collaborative (NYeC). Our technology stack is designed to support additional data flow through regional or national networks as they come online in the future.

In real time, we deliver the highest quality health data available. More than 6,900 clinical users in our region share as many as 5 million individuals’ health records through Hixny, while hundreds of thousands of people use Hixny to view and share their own records.

Patients, primary care providers, specialists and other healthcare professionals rely on Hixny data to improve patient care every day. Can you find more complete and accurate data? In a word: no.

Hixny is highly secure.

We take data security seriously. Very seriously. Our enterprise-grade systems are protected by the same technology, protocols and systems used by the military, law enforcement and leading financial institutions. They are consistently and independently audited, evaluated and enhanced. When it comes to data security, we never rest easy—so you can.
