The Foundation for Collaborative Care, Innovation, and Transformation
The health and wellness ecosystem is diverse, with care delivered across a wide range of organizations, geographies, and disciplines. Similarly, the information this ecosystem creates and consumes is diverse, dispersed, and dynamic. A unified care record providing a current and complete view of all the data – clinical, social, and financial – is key to improving patient care and fostering innovation.
Bring Together the Information that Matters
HealthShare Unified Care Record helps providers, payers, consumers, researchers, and solution developers overcome the challenges of decentralized data by creating a shared, comprehensive, and unified care record. HealthShare delivers relevant data from the unified record into clinical and business workflows, communicates across your application and business ecosystem, and facilitates timely action through real-time notifications.
HealthShare data is normalized, so all of it, regardless of source, is stored in a single, consistent format. This data can power analytics applications, HL7 FHIR® applications, and AI for knowledge discovery. Because it is updated in near real-time, you can be confident you’re always working with the latest information.
HealthShare extends and enhances the software investments you’ve already made. And it is a strong foundation for pursuing new business relationships and integrated care models with confidence. Additional use cases include:
- Coordinating and optimizing team-based community care delivery for individuals and populations
- Ensuring continuity as you modernize your IT infrastructure by archiving legacy clinical data in your unified care record
- Seeing performance trends in time to make the course corrections essential for success in value-based care
- Investing limited resources cost effectively using business intelligence to identify population cohorts at highest risk
- Uniting claims and clinical data with information about social determinants of health to optimize care management and population health initiatives
- Innovation by redesigning processes, leveraging data for research, or serving up data for FHIR-based applications
Unified Care Record
HealthShare includes a comprehensive and extensible health data model and data normalization technology for unifying all information relevant to each person, regardless of its source or format. This includes patient-generated data, clinical content, claims, and social determinants of health.
The browser-based HealthShare Clinical Viewer is designed for a longitudinal representation of care, and mobile care delivery. Quick summaries bring the most relevant information together on one screen, and a single click brings the clinician to details on history, conditions, allergies, medications, labs, vital signs, social determinants, and more. In many cases, the unified care record is integrated directly into the electronic medical record systems used by clinicians.
An optional license for Clinical Architecture’s Symedical® software enables HealthShare “Clinigraphics” in the Clinical Viewer. These are condition summaries that display relevant labs, vitals, medications, and related conditions all in one place to enhance the decision-making process.
To minimize the cognitive burden on clinicians, HealthShare includes support for single-sign on between an EMR and the Clinical Viewer. With minimal configuration, administrators can add a link in the EMR which takes clinicians to the Clinical Viewer without requiring a second log in. This saves clinicians the time and trouble of having to remember another set of credentials.
Messaging and Event Notifications
HealthShare supports coordinated care across the entire care team, including consumers, with secure messaging and automated notifications. Care managers can subscribe to alerts on their members for events such as Emergency Department visits, abnormal lab results, gaps in care, and missed appointments. These notifications help avoid costly adverse events and align care teams and patients around desired outcomes.
Social Determinants of Health
HealthShare makes it easier to communicate a complete picture of the individual across the health and social care community. It can store, analyze, and share non-clinical factors affecting the overall health of a patient, such as living situation, healthy food availability, or access to transportation.
Advanced FHIR Capabilities
HealthShare continues our longstanding healthcare interoperability leadership with concurrent support for FHIR STU3, the latest version, and the previous version, DSTU2. Our FHIR support includes:
- Representing all of your data as FHIR resources, and using our FHIR Server to simplify data sharing with devices and applications
- Mapping between older data formats and FHIR to help you increase the value of legacy systems
- A graphical user interface that allows you to map your data model customizations to FHIR extensions
In addition to FHIR, HealthShare supports all the major national and international interoperability standards, including HL7v2 and multiple CDA formats, that are used by your data sources.
