"Since the advent of the Regional Extension Centers and the Health Information Technology Research Center, we recognized the importance of committing our resources to help bring every targeted provider and practice into the umbrella of advanced healthcare if we are to truly create a national health information network," said Greenway® President and CEO Tee Green.

NYC REACH functionality

Upon being named in April, 2010 by the New York City REC as a preferred EHR partner, Greenway has been collaborating with NYC REACH to deliver innovative and tailored public health reporting solutions through Greenway's cloud technology to further the REC's role in connecting its region and expanding interoperability.

"The NYC Health Department has been working closely with Greenway to develop more public health functionalities for extension center members. When this work is complete, Greenway users will receive public health alerts specific to their patients and feedback from the health department on their quality measures. By receiving important health alerts in the EHR, Greenway users will have critical information when they need it, when the patient is in the office," said Dr. Jesse Singer, executive director of development, NYC Health Department Primary Care Information Project.
