The mission of the Rochester RHIO is to provide the greater Rochester medical service area with a system for a secure health information exchange that allows for timely access to clinical information and improved decision making. The primary goal is to share patient healthcare information in a secure environment to improve patient care and to reduce system inefficiencies.
The Rochester RHIO is a critical link in the Statewide Health Information Network of New York (SHIN-NY), and seeks to collaborate with health information exchange efforts across New York State.
Rochester RHIO has launched Explore+.This new patient search technology was created specifically for the complex demands of HIE data environments.
