Statement from Rochester RHIO
"We are deeply saddened by the passing of Sandy Parker. As Rochester RHIO's first board chair, Sandy's vision and leadership impacted our growth and ability to provide access to better care for individuals in Rochester and the Finger Lakes region.

Sandy knew how to bring together organizations and individuals to collaborate for the betterment of our community. It was her life's work and she did it in a focused, efficient and sustainable way. We are proud to be a part of her legacy and counted among the many organizations that are better today because of her dedication. Our thoughts are with Sandy's family as they remember her many contributions.

A remembrance of Sandy was published in the Democrat & Chronicle and the Rochester Beacon.
Have You Used the Expression View in Explore+?

One of the best features in Explore+ is the Expression View. The Expression View allows authorized users of RHIO's advanced clinical query portal to view a community health record by encounter type, lab, image, etc. For example, you can click "Laboratories", and then a listing of Laboratory data displays. That list can then be filtered or sorted. There is even a free text search option available.
