High Level Goals of Healthcare Interoperability Part 3: Connect Externally

June 17, 2015

Part 3 of 3.

Read Part 1 – Adopt Certified Technology. Read Part 2 – Integrate and Exchange.

With a solid, integrated data foundation in place, it becomes easier to smartly scale to add new layers to your health data ecosystem. Whether it be to simply satisfy the Meaningful Use requirement of sending patient summary of care information to state public health repositories, to incorporate new clinics and hospitals as health systems continue to consolidate and expand, or to offer premium services to the referring medical community, you now have the ability to effectively create meaningful interoperability outside the four walls of your organization.

Through the experience and lessons learned from connecting internal applications and populating a patient database using Corepoint Integration Engine, users now have the experience necessary to obtain and share data between applications.

While Meaningful Use is a good minimum threshold for exchange, most modern, connected systems go beyond Meaningful Use requirements and employ a variety of data standards and exchange methods to build a dynamic ecosystem that provides key insights that include treatment history and context where it is needed – at the point of care.

Scale Smarter

Externally exchange health data using a variety of methods with Corepoint Integration Engine depending on users’ needs and easily satisfy Meaningful Use requirements using:

  • Direct Project and web services (data transport)
  • Consolidated CDA (data standard)
  • HL7
  • XML
  • TCP/IP
  • FTP, and more

With the technology already in place, many healthcare organizations are using Microsoft technologies to help expand operations and quickly incorporate new facilities and exchange partners. Microsoft technologies are more affordable and have many proven benefits, including:

  • High Availability
  • Proven Privacy and Security
  • Scalable SQL servers
  • The ability to easily find data using Google-like search across multiple days and connections
