Author information

  • 1Weill Medical College of Cornell University, Department of Public Health, in New York City.


Through a novel, ambitious program called HEAL NY, New York State plans to invest $250 million in health information technology (IT) that can be linked electronically to other health IT systems. In contrast to high rates of closure by other organizations attempting health information exchange (HIE), 100 percent of HEAL NY Phase 1 grantees still existed two years after awards were announced, 85 percent were still pursuing HIE, and 35 percent had actual users. The number of grantees meeting basic criteria for regional health information organizations (RHIOs) increased. Although it is early, lessons learned can inform state-based initiatives nationwide.
