Interoperability for MU2 / HIE / ACO / IDN
Even though integration platforms, data format standards, and document exchange specifications are all widely used in healthcare, a big challenge remains in the pursuit of interoperability: ensuring you’re sharing data on the same object. For example, if you don’t know the information system of your trading partner, how can you be certain that you’re receiving data on the patient or provider named “Jane Smith” that you inquired about?
Technical frameworks, like IHE and NwHIN, provide a suggested roadmap to accommodate these challenges. They define implementations to achieve effective systems integration, facilitate appropriate sharing of medical information and support optimal patient care. They list EMPI, Terminology translation, Provider Directories, and Record Locator Services as important components involved in efficient and accurate data exchange.
NextGate offers software and services to help you along your path to interoperability. The NextGate Registries for Healthcare provide an integrated software platform that addresses the data identification, location, translation, and integration requirements of interoperability.
As an integrated platform, the NextGate Registries for Healthcare provide a flexible mechanism to help you, regardless of your project’s current phase or deployment model (centralized, federated, or a hybrid). Individual registries can be implemented one at a time, or all at once. The user interfaces, access management, audit trails, support process, and other elements are similar across the entire platform, reducing the need to learn multiple new products and alleviating the complex integration logic required to keep products from different vendors in synch.
