About Southern Tier HealthLink (NYHealthScape in SL)
STHL is a non-profit organization designed as a partnership which brings together healthcare providers and consumers in Central New York to “connect the dots” with technology that will improve healthcare quality, access and safety while reducing costs. One of STHL’s primary roles as a Health Information Exchange (HIE) is to educate health care patients and providers on the value of an interoperable HIE and the benefits of maintaining a Personal Healthcare Record (PHR).
Because Second Life offers a low cost and far reaching opportunity to engage the healthcare consumer in a hands-on and compelling new setting, STHL has begun to tap its potential as an education and communication tool to help meet the community outreach goals of STHL’s mission, including interacting with a PHR and HIE (www.sthlny.com).
