Hixny received a milestone grant under HEAL for $1.7 million. Albany-based insurer CDPHP provided matching funds, bringing the coffers up to $3.4 million.
Ray Murphy was asked to lead Hixny in collaboration with committees comprised of the organization’s board members. A core goal of the “working board” was to build trust for information sharing across healthcare leaders representing different systems and to leverage the HEAL grant to build an HIE to link Capital Region payers and providers.
Hixny chose FirstGateways as its platform.
