New usability and security enhancements improve healthcare data collaboration for providers, patients, and payers
CAMBRIDGE, Mass., November 30, 2021 — InterSystems, a creative data technology provider dedicated to helping customers solve the most critical scalability, interoperability, and speed problems, today announced the availability of HealthShare 2021.2, the latest version of InterSystems HealthShare® suite of connected health solutions. With expanded data and functionality throughout the suite, HealthShare 2021.2 fosters collaboration across the patient care team while enhancing usability and security.
As the healthcare industry continues to navigate the COVID-19 pandemic, it has never been more critical to support collaboration through shared, easy access to patient health records. HealthShare 2021.2 is therefore focused on expanding the breadth and usability of digital health data for care planning and delivery, payer-to-payer data exchange, and analytics to empower not only healthcare providers, but healthcare consumers through one consolidated information hub.
In keeping with US Federal health policy goals of promoting information transparency, accuracy, and accessibility, the release reflects InterSystems ongoing investment in
Ⓡ based information management. This includes:
- An expanded standard data set for provider identity management and support for HL7’s DaVinci initiative leveraging FHIR to streamline data sharing between payers and providers. Higher quality provider data ensures consumers can choose health plans with confidence, while streamlined data sharing reduces the bottlenecks in care delivery.
- Enhanced FHIR-based care plans to promote community-based care planning with the patient as a full member of the care team.
- Support for Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) regulations for payer-to-payer data sharing means that consumers who choose to change health plans can arrange for their data, and care plans, to follow them.
- Continued investment in both consumer and clinician data presentation to improve the process of delivering and managing care.
“Across health organizations, we are seeing a greater demand for digital health solutions to streamline care workflows and make information more accessible, not just to providers, but to consumers,” said Don Woodlock, Head of Healthcare Solutions at InterSystems. “With the launch of HealthShare 2021.2, we are doubling down on making healthcare data unified, secure, and scalable to support a better health and care experience.”
The latest HealthShare release is built on the InterSystems IRIS for Health data platform and takes advantage of improvements to data ingestion and expanded analytics capabilities.
