Description: To support the realization of an interoperable New York, NYeC issues this RFP to obtain proposals from the EHR vendor community for the procurement of interfaces in bulk on behalf of the providers of New York State. NYeC envisions partnership with the EHR vendor community to identify providers interested in connecting to the SHIN-NY, the development of the interface from their EHR to the SHIN-NY, to support price transparency and to implement the technical specifications ratified by the EHR|HIE interoperability WG via the approach designated by that stakeholder group. Upon review of the submitted proposals NYeC will invite several vendors to participate in this unique opportunity to support the foundation of data exchange in New York State.

The New York eHealth Collaborative, Inc. (NYeC) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit corporation established as a public-private partnership to service as a focal point for health care stakeholders to build consensus on state health information technology (IT) policy priorities, and collaborate on state and regional health IT implementation efforts. NYeC received grant dollars for the project titled “Expanding New York State’s Health Information Infrastructure”. The purpose of this grant is to promote health care information exchange (HIE), the meaningful use of certified EHR technology and the integration of EHR and HIE services to further efforts to improve quality and value of health care in New York State.

The SHIN-NY is a secure network for sharing clinical patient data across New York State via Regional Health Information Organizations (RHIOs). The SHIN-NY is coordinated by NYeC in conjunction with the New York State Department of Health, and the state’s 11 RHIOs.
