Cayuga County—Consent Matters

2021 Annual Report: 15 Stories for 15 Years

Cayuga County is the most recent area in the Greater Finger Lakes geography to participate with Rochester RHIO. Since coming on board in 2017, 11,000 unique consents have been signed—and that number is growing every day.
More than 1.7 million patients across RHIO’s 14-county area have now given consent to have their medical records go where they go.
As a secure electronic health information exchange serving authorized medical providers, RHIO makes it possible for a medical care team to share records, radiology and lab test results, prescriptions and other information across institutions and practices. Patients benefit from fewer repeated tests, easier second opinions, a reduced risk of mistakes caused by poor handwriting or incomplete records, and more informed care during office visits and emergencies.
