New York eHealth Collaborative
“I'm thrilled to serve on the advisory committee and look forward to helping shape the next phase of health information exchange in our country, while ensuring the interests of patients and the public remain at the center of our efforts.”
As Executive Director for the New York eHealth Collaborative (NYeC), Valerie Grey interacts with a diverse group of stakeholders working together to advance care, improve patient outcomes, and lower costs in New York State through health information technology. In partnership with the New York State Department of Health, NYeC leads the state’s public health information exchange, the Statewide Health Information Network for New York (SHIN-NY). The SHIN-NY is comprised of eight regional health information organizations and a statewide connector--it is one of the largest state HIEs in the country.
