Health integration platform Redox, today announced that they will now offer developers and healthcare organizations the option to use FHIR®, Fast Healthcare Interoperability Resource, for health data exchange over the Redox Network: R^FHIR. R^FHIR expands the capabilities of the Redox Platform by offering developers the choice to interact with a singular FHIR® implementation while still benefiting from the standardization and normalization provided to the network of organizations using Redox for health data exchange.
FHIR® is a healthcare data standard developed by the standards body Health Level Seven International (HL7) designed to modernize the way healthcare exchanges data.Currently, most FHIR offerings only offer read functionalities but Redox is now offering first-to-market read, write and messaging workflows. This means that integration workflows can be triggered based on clinical events, such as scheduling an appointment or admitting a patient, making it one of the largest FHIR implementations with the most robust functionalities.
R^FHIR will allow applications to:
– Communicate bidirectionally using FHIR® and message-based workflows.
– For Vendors – Leverage a consistent FHIR® experience regardless of EHR vendor, or how/if FHIR® is implemented at the healthcare organization.
– For Healthcare Delivery Organizations – Redox will modernize your existing interfaces, making them FHIR®-enabled APIs.
“Redox uses input from its users to develop a uniform data structure that represents healthcare developer’s real-world demands today,” said Redox’s co-founder and CTO, James Lloyd. “Making R^FHIR available to organizations powered by Redox allows us to accelerate the adoption and use of FHIR® in a way that ensures consistency and usability by enabling integration workflows we’ve executed at hundreds of healthcare organizations. As supporters of open standards, we’re excited to implement FHIR® in an EHR-agnostic, interoperable way.”
R^FHIR is immediately available to every organization currently powered by Redox, regardless of their EHR vendor’s support or implementation of FHIR®.
