Will this small company be responsible for keeping the data secure? Or is it just building the front end interface, with details like security handled by others?

I hope more state wide HIE's take the lead from SHIN-NY and start offering their members more of these resources such as this patient portal being offered. By giving these sorts of incentives to members, they are building up the appeal of their memberships and hopefully can reach more practices. I also really like that the patient portal allows patients to access multiple provider portals from one location instead of having to use multiple locations.

We can provide access, but it's still a challenge to get many patients to look at our data, or to take action based on what we learn. There's a presumption that information will make us healthier. But Modern Healthcare just wrote about a study that shows poor (even dire) lab results didn't spur older adults to change their behavior:

When it comes to managing data, donít look at backup and archiving systems as burdens and cost centers. A well-designed archive can enhance data protection and restores, ease search and e-discovery efforts, and save money by intelligently moving data from expensive primary storage systems.
