Mana Health, a technology provider for healthcare data access solutions has announced the availability of ManaCreate, a technology and support solution designed to enable faster and more cost effective commercialization of healthcare innovation. Targeted to innovation and IT groups within health systems and hospitals, ManaCreate supports the process for testing and integration of new applications to support a more agile innovation process.
Bringing any new healthcare IT system to market generally requires the same basic process of developing a first phase of a workable product, conducting testing, going to live deployment – in a HIPAA Compliant environment, and ultimately creating a minimal viable product (MVP). This can not only be time consuming but costly, with the typical new integration can be $200,000 to upwards of $500,000. ManaCreate successfully removes the barriers of data flow by instantly providing a test environment that is pre-loaded with test patients, with a well-documented API and developer support, and the ability to switch to live data at any time using the production level ManaCloud™ platform.
“As developers ourselves, it’s a passion for us to help reduce the barriers to innovation in healthcare. We created a health IT sandbox that enables anyone – from innovation teams at health systems and pharma companies to healthcare accelerators – to test new digital health services without the heavy lifting of creating deep integrations at the outset,” said Bradley. “To allow innovation to flourish in healthcare, more flexible systems are needed for the ‘test and learn’ process, along with more robust data output, and this is exactly what ManaCreate™ provides.” – Chris Bradley, CEO, Mana Health in a statement.
Key features of the ManaCreate service include:
· Thousands of test patients’ worth of clinical data
· Ability to import additional custom records from your facility
· Developer-friendly API, support, and documentation portal
· Seamless path to EHR integration and live deployment
· HIPAA-compliant data management
ManaCreate becomes the third pillar of data access solutions from Mana Health, which also include ManaCloud and ManaPortal patient portal. The ManaCloud architecture is the foundation of ManaCreate, and Mana Portal, an untethered meaningful use patient portal.
