What is the Hudson Center?

The Hudson Center for Health Equity & Quality (Hudson Center) is dedicated to improving the accessibility and quality of health care through administrative, technological, and clinical streamlining.

Our Vision

The Hudson Center for Health Equity and Quality (Hudson Center) works to improve health care through administrative, technological, and clinical streamlining. The Hudson Center advocates for systematic reform toward the goal of universal, high quality, cost effective, and humane health care in the United States.

An independent, not-for-profit organization, the Hudson Center supports the delivery of high quality health care for all people. We create information technology solutions to streamline access to health care programs for people who need them, and we advocate for policies that will improve the lives of all – patients and health care providers – to ensure high-quality, cost-effective, humane health care for all people. As the national health information infrastructure grows, the Hudson Center will continue to contribute by designing and offering tools that streamline administrative and clinical practices and interoperability of data.

Who We Are

The Hudson Center for Health Equity & Quality is a not-for-profit health care advocacy and technology company founded in 2004 to streamline administrative processes for government programs and reduce health system costs for all stakeholders, including government payers. The Hudson Center has implemented systems in New York State that facilitate speedy, online processing of Medicaid applications, benefiting millions of New Yorkers in public insurance programs, as well as providers, health plans, and agencies that administer public programs.

Consistent with its mission, the Hudson Center works closely with designated New York Health Homes to develop technology that supports business processes and care coordination with the goal of improving care, improving the experience of care, and reducing costs. Hudson Center has worked with regional Qualified Entities (QEs – formerly Regional Healthcare Information Organizations, or RHIOs) to ensure effective information sharing among health care teams, including compliance with requirements outlined by the New York State Office of Health Insurance Technology Transformation.

The New York State of Health (NYSoH) insurance “Marketplace” requires health insurers to communicate electronically via standard HIPAA transactions. The Hudson Center has developed an application – called Xchange Connect – that that enables robust and compliant transactions between health plans and the NYSoH. Features and functions include member management and payment system reconciliation, invoicing, workflow management and reporting, all which save time and reduce transaction processing costs.
