The HIN of the Future:
Integrating Clinical + Social Care

Providers need more than an organized view of data points. They need meaningful information about a patient’s clinical condition and health-related social needs (HRSN)—and ways to take action. Hixny makes it all available with one click.

The nonprofit community health information network (HIN) serving eastern New York, Hixny is connected to the Statewide Health Information Network for New York (SHIN-NY). We are among the industry leaders in both innovation and information security.

Assess HRSN Inside Your EHR

Using SMART on FHIR app technology, Hixny makes patient records and actionable information available to providers within several leading EHRs. But we go farther than that.

Providers now have integrated access to the well-respected Accountable Health Communities Health-Related Social Needs Screening (AHC HRSN) tool within the Hixny snapshot app. Not only does this support comprehensive patient care, but it positions Hixny-participating providers well in advance of the expected extension of New York’s 1115 Medicaid waiver, which will call for increased attention to HRSN, in part through the use of standardized screening tools.

Make HRSN Referrals within the App

Improving outcomes requires attention to more than clinical conditions. That’s why Hixny is focused on making strides toward heath equity by giving providers ways to address HRSN within their current workflow.

Within the Hixny app, providers can view social needs history and—when necessary—make an immediate referral for social services through our partnership with Health Alliance.

A Well-Informed Collaboration

Hixny works directly with providers from diverse disciplines to make sure we understand providers’ challenges and get the solutions right. No guessing. No assumptions.

This dedication to informed product development has helped Hixny prove its ability to:

  • Speed up healthcare encounters
  • Reduce duplicate testing and procedures
  • Help avoid unnecessary imaging
  • Improve care coordination
  • Reduce costs of care

What are you waiting for?

  • Providers are already seeing the benefit of integrating HRSN assessment and referrals in the review of patient records—share your details to start the conversation.
  • Hixny will never share or sell your contact information.
Hixny will be performing extended maintenance beginning Thursday, December 31 through Friday, January 1. During this time, all services
will be impacted and unavailable—including access to the provider portal.
