As you may know, the New York eHealth Collaborative (NYeC) is building the Patient Portal for New Yorkers—a statewide website where New Yorkers will be able to securely access their healthcare records. To create the most user-friendly portal design possible, NYeC hosted a Design Challenge earlier this year, calling on designers and developers to submit prototypes of what the portal should look like and now they are asking the public to vote on the designs. They want to hear from as many stakeholders as possible. This is a great opportunity for HIM professionals to make an impact on the future of health information delivery in New York State. Voting ends on April 23. Take a moment now to choose your favorite and spread the word to your colleagues! Click this link to view their video and vote: http://patientportalfornewyorkers.org/
