NYeC was founded in 2006 and later designated by the federal government and the state of New York to advance HIT statewide– improving healthcare and reducing costs for all New Yorkers. While it receives support and official designations from the state and federal governments, NYeC is an independent collaborative. It partners with stakeholders from around the state and across the nation to promote innovation, provide support, and establish policies necessary to advance HIT in New York. NYeC works to ensure that its mission of statewide HIT implementation is successful through a specific focus on four key areas: education, public and private collaboration, the construction of a statewide health information network for New York (SHIN-NY), and technical and adoption services to help providers adopt electronic health records in their practices.
