New Data Source: Medical Diagnostic Laboratories


Rochester RHIO is excited to onboard Medical Diagnostic Laboratories as a new data source. Medical Diagnostic Laboratories is a reference laboratory. In addition, Rochester RHIO is working on connecting additoinal new laboratories under NYS Executive Order 202.82. These labs can be headquartered outside of New York, but do business in the state.
This new laboratory connectivity will expand the community patient record in more meaningful ways. This additional data will also help fight the COVID-19 pandemic. A more complete, community patient health record improves patient health care quality and supports clinicians in care planning and coordination.
In addition, data from dozens of new labs from around the state are being added on a weekly basis. This statewide data will also be made available for RHIO participants via the SHIN-NY.
