A FHIR-enabled patient access API for interoperability allows multiple healthcare systems, applications, and devices to securely access, integrate, and exchange health data. It not only facilitates portability and healthcare consumerism, but it also provides critical data at the point of care to optimize patient outcomes.
Today, ONC and CMS are driving the development of interoperability standards, with input of industry groups, to ensure access and transfer of electronic health information (EHI) data from multiple health IT systems. As a result, a patient's clinical, demographic, and claims history can be seamlessly accessed – with the individual's consent – by payers, providers, patients and healthcare IT services organizations using the FHIR-based data format. Easy retrieval of and access to a more comprehensive view of a patient’s data through interoperability helps improve care delivery, reduce costs, and promote a better patient experience.
Because individuals experience different clinical diagnoses, patients may go to a series of care settings, independent practitioners, or hospitals to support their care. Every individual interaction with a care provider adds to the patient’s unique medical history. Not having access to a comprehensive patient profile due to the lack of integrated health IT systems and data is not only inconvenient for the patient, but it can also be prone to errors and result in lower quality care. Complete and timely access to personal health records (PHR) dramatically enhances the quality of care each medical professional can provide.
Interoperability also provides patients more control over their medical data allowing them to make more informed decisions for better health outcomes. Through these new ONC regulations, patients are in control of their personal health data with the authority to give consent to share their data, thus creating a truly member-driven, patient-centric system of care.
This information passes through numerous systems through database and system integrations. Healthcare entities may need a hub and spoke data model for EMR data integration from data collection to distribution.
LexisNexis Risk Solutions provides healthcare organizations with a single Patient Access API integration point to securely access, clean, standardize, and enrich data captured across EMRs, and other health information systems. Our solution offers consistent, clean information across every participating network of payers, providers, healthcare IT organizations and patients.
