Healthix and CLEAR Advance Easy and Secure Access to Health Data in New York
Whether a patient or provider, gathering information from different health systems and organizations can sometimes feel like assembling a puzzle with pieces from different sets. Each healthcare ecosystem holds a crucial piece of information, but the challenge is bringing it all together seamlessly. Just as creating a complete picture from mismatched pieces requires creativity, uniting health records across disparate systems demands an innovative solution for cohesive results and more seamless experiences. At CLEAR, we are committed to providing that innovative solution through the power of our reusable, networked identity and partnerships that empower change.
A Partnership That Empowers
On December 13, Healthix, one of the largest public Health Information Exchanges (HIE) in the nation which serves the greater southern New York region, and CLEAR announced their partnership to empower consumers with free, easy and secure access to their healthcare data from more than 8,000 health facilities, and over 20 million unique patient records across New York State in a single portal.
Healthix has also engaged its New York State HIE colleague, Hixny, to provide the patient portal technology which embeds CLEAR’s identity verification technology to seamlessly verify a consumer’s identity and provide them with secure and easy access to their health information.
How it works
The partnership enables interoperability between health systems and health organizations across New York State which participate in Healthix. Healthix aggregates this information and updates it with each new patient encounter. Patients are enabled with a universal health ID to access their health records by simply verifying their identity with a selfie, and finding their combined records in a single portal. The partnership also relieves New York State healthcare providers from the process of manually generating temporary passcodes for each patient to retrieve their health records.
