In its latest offering for the health information exchange technology stack, 4medica is set to launch the industry’s first FHIR-based clinical data repository (CDR) with patient record matching; developed for patient-centered data homes and other initiatives. Scheduled for release in early summer, the 4medica CDR will also match patient records and eliminate duplicate records with powerful accuracy and speed.
How the 4medica CDR advances a universal patient record
Historically, HIEs move rather than store healthcare data. But for today’s “HIE 2.0” that wants to create a nationally accessible home for patient-centric data, a CDR is a must. To that end, the 4medica offering will provide a secure, scalable environment for a comprehensive view of patient-centric data.
Crucially, because of 4medica’s powerful data enrichment engine that matches records in real time while utilizing unlimited historical values—creating a powerfully reliable master patient record–all stakeholders can be assured data is about the right patient. The CDR in turn can be accessed by providers, labs, payers, and most importantly, patients. Feature highlights include:
– FHIR-based engine
– The 4medica Big Data MPI for accurate, real time record matching
– Patient and provider portals
“Everyone agrees access to patient-centric data is the end goal. But the data must be accurately matched to the right patient, or else all the time and resource investment in interoperability initiatives is wasted,” said Gregory Church, President of 4medica.
Church continued, “So who will be the custodian to verify and validate the data? Someone capable must assume this responsibility. With 20 years of experience in clinical data interoperability, and standardizing and aggregating tens of millions of patient identities, 4medica is better prepared than any other entity to take this role on.”
