PSYCKES is a secure, HIPAA-compliant web-based platform developed by the NYS Office of Mental Health (OMH) for sharing Medicaid billing claims and encounter data, other state health administrative data, and data and documents entered by providers and patients. PSYCKES supports quality improvement, clinical decision-making and care coordination.
