Axolotl debuts development team for N.Y. health info network
Axolotl has created a development team to work with the N.Y. Department of Health and the N.Y. eHealth Collaborative to help define the architecture and build the Statewide Health Information Network for New York (SHIN-NY).

Work will be undertaken in collaboration with Axolotl's N.Y. regional health information organizations, to improve patient care and reduce healthcare costs through secure electronic health information exchange.

SHIN-NY is the foundation of the state's technical infrastructure and will allow clinicians and consumers to make timely, fact-based decisions that will reduce medical errors and redundant tests, and improve the quality and coordination of care. The SHIN-NY will utilize the internet and include specialized software protocols and services, including security tools, and will be a part of the emerging Nationwide Health Information Network.
