New public health information available

RHIO Explore Logo

In RHIO Explore, a Deceased checkbox is available on patient records. If a person has passed way in the last 30 days, the Deceased checkbox should be flagged if the notification is received from one of 11 counties in our region. 

Rochester RHIO is receiving public health death notifications from 11 counties, including:

  • Chemung
  • Genesee
  • Livingston
  • Monroe
  • Ontario
  • Orleans
  • Schuyler
  • Seneca
  • Steuben
  • Wayne
  • Yates

If a person falls outside of these counties, then the box will not be checked in Explore.
