Healthcare interoperability is becoming a mandate and key differentiator as healthcare records become increasingly digitized. Patients’ electronic health records must be available, discoverable, understandable, and structured and secured to support interoperability, automated clinical decision making, and other machine-based processing actions.
In the U.S, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) has published the “Interoperability and Patient Access final rule (CMS-9115-F)” that mandates patient information availability in HL7 Fast Healthcare Interoperability Resources (FHIR®) interoperability format by January and July of 2021. Whilst FHIR® based interoperability is a mandate for U.S based healthcare insurance, healthcare providers and their stakeholders, these healthcare interoperability standards are applicable for all healthcare organizations globally.
WSO2 Open Healthcare is WSO2’s offering in the healthcare space which connects healthcare source systems in many formats including FHIR®, HL7, X12 and custom formats and translates, validates, and exposes them as US Core, Da Vinci, CARIN and FHIR international compliant FHIR APIs. The platform can be deployed on-premises or on the cloud/SaaS in VMs or containers. Our purpose built healthcare platform is built on our market leading API management, integration, and CIAM platforms to solve the most complex healthcare integration challenges.
We’re now focusing on a partner driven go-to-market plan and strategic implementation partners for our healthcare solution. As such, we’d like to partner with qualified system integrators and value added resellers in the healthcare space. We’ve organized a webinar on the basics of the requirement, details of the solution, and how partners can engage with us. We’re calling all partners and system integrators with a healthcare practice to come join us on this exciting journey.
