Healthix and NYCIG, two of New York’s leading public health information exchanges (HIEs), announced Monday they are a merged organization. The new entity will retain the Healthix name and Todd M. Rogow, President & CEO, will continue in that role. Nick VanDuyne, the current CEO at NYCIG, will join Healthix as Senior Vice President and Chief Information Officer. The merger further increases Healthix’ capacity to serve the healthcare community across New York City, Long Island and New York State. Key goals for the organization include a vast expansion of available data, access to health information for over 18,000 clinicians and greater operating efficiencies. Healthix’ position as the largest public health information exchange in the nation — and one of the most robust — is reinforced with this merger.
