For Doctors

Using the Health Information Exchange

With the RHIO's community health information exchange (HIE), physicians can instantly access patient information —including lab results, radiology reports and images, clinical documents, hospital discharge summaries and admission/discharge notification—from the RHIO's 14-county service area, which serves over 1.5 million residents. The RHIO also helps physicians who already have an electronic health record (EHR) system for managing patient information and supports EHR adoption throughout the community. The RHIO's Regional Account team also supports hospitals and physician practices in their efforts to achieve CMS "Meaningful Use" certification.

Fees

QEs must use these funds to provide a minimum set of services to their members at no charge. QEs are permitted to offer additional services as “value-added” services for which they may collect a fee. The Rochester RHIO Fee Schedule provides a summary of available services for the current year.

New York State QEs are required to provide this disclosure to prospective QE participants, and upon request at any time. More: Rochester RHIO Core Fee Schedule.
