The NYHISPC has completed four major stages of work over the course of ten months, including:

  1. Assessing Variations in Business Practices and the Law Related to the Secure Exchange of Health Care Information
  2. Developing Solutions to Support Secure Electronic Exchange of Health Care Information While Preserving Patient Privacy
  3. Developing a Plan to Implement the Solutions
