Regional Health Information Organizations (RHIOs)
A RHIO, or QE (Qualified Entity), is a local hub where a region’s electronic health information is stored and shared. There are eight RHIOs in New York State that each cover different areas from Buffalo to New York City. These RHIOs are the backbone of the SHIN-NY, providing the services that make secure, vital access to a patient’s health information possible statewide.
The map below details each RHIO coverage area in New York State:
