The Foundation for Collaborative Care, Innovation, and Transformation
The health and wellness ecosystem is highly decentralized. Healthcare data is diverse, dispersed, and frequently changing. Yet a holistic view of it all – clinical, social, financial – is key to improving care and fostering innovation. An always-current and complete health story requires a unified care record.
Bring Together the Information that Matters
InterSystems HealthShare Information Exchange helps providers, payers, consumers, researchers, and solution developers overcome the challenge of data decentralization by creating a shareable, comprehensive, unified care record as your health information foundation. It delivers relevant data from that record into clinical and business workflows, communicates across your application and business ecosystem, and facilitates timely action through real-time notifications.
The unified care record is normalized, so all data, regardless of source, is stored in a single, consistent format. This data can be served up for analytics applications, published as FHIR resources to consumer devices, and mined for knowledge discovery. And since it is updated in near real-time, you can be confident you’re always working with the latest information.
Information Exchange 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 SMART on FHIR applications
Unified Care Record
Information Exchange includes a comprehensive and extensible health data model and data normalization technology for unifying all information relevant to each person, regardless of its source location or type. This includes patient-generated data, clinical content, claims, and social determinants of health.
The browser-based HealthShare Clinical Viewer is designed specifically for a longitudinal representation of care and mobile care delivery. But in many cases, the unified care record is integrated directly into the electronic medical record systems used by clinicians. To make the unified care record accessible to patients, members, and designees you can add the InterSystems HealthShare Personal Community product.
Messaging and Event Notifications
Information Exchange supports optimal, 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 admissions, 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
Information Exchange 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
Information Exchange continues InterSystems longstanding healthcare interoperability leadership with advanced support for FHIR® DSTU2 and STU3 including:
- 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.
In addition to FHIR, Information Exchange supports all the major national and international interoperability standards, including
HL7® V2 and CDA, that are used by your data sources.
Because trust is essential to successful interoperability, Information Exchange is based on a strong consent framework shared throughout the HealthShare suite of connected health solutions. It enables you to specify information sharing consent at a granular level, by facilities, clinical relationships, groups, patients, and even types of data.
