For Providers & Healthcare Facilities
For the good of our patients.
SYNCRONYS is based on a public utility model where providers and healthcare organizations (large and small) provide and share information for the common good. It allows unrelated healthcare organizations to share information by creating a neutral network for synthesizing information from all participating organizations.
HEALTH INFORMATION EXCHANGE IS… THE SECURE AND TIMELY SHARING OF ELECTRONIC HEALTH DATA ACROSS THE BOUNDARIES OF HEALTHCARE INSTITUTIONS.
- An individual seeking medical care in today’s society sees an average of 18 providers during their lifetime. SYNCRONYS consolidates information from those various providers, reducing the amount of time patients spend filling out paperwork and briefing their providers on their medical history, and allowing more time for discussions about health concerns and treatments.
- Information accessed via SYNCRONYS, including x-rays, CT results and other testing information helps patients avoid unnecessary or and duplicate testing, hospitalization, and emergency department visits.
- SYNCRONYS stores Advanced Directives allowing a patient’s wishes to be shared with a broader audience.
- In the event of an emergency, medical personnel will have access to the patient’s records saving critical time.
