Hospital Sisters Health System (HSHS) has announced its first ever integration using the new SMART on FHIR platform with Epic and SeamlessMD to deliver a unified experience for patient engagement. Starting with the Prairie Heart Institute at HSHS St. John’s Hospital, the health system is using SeamlessMD within the EpicCare environment to deliver patient engagement, enable care management, and leverage artificial intelligence to improve patient outcomes.
Since 2017, Prairie Heart Institute has used SeamlessMD’s platform to engage patients throughout their care, monitor patients to catch complications earlier and improve clinical outcomes through analytics and artificial intelligence. By delivering the right care, to the right patient, at the right time, Prairie Heart Institute has leveraged SeamlessMD to significantly reduce the length of stay and 30-day readmissions.
Now, HSHS and Prairie Heart Institute have built on this success by going live with a SeamlessMD integration with Epic using SMART on FHIR By working with SeamlessMD, available now in Epic’s App Orchard program, HSHS was able to complete an integration with SeamlessMD much more quickly than traditional integration methods. This integration will allow HSHS providers to enroll, receive alerts and monitor patients on SeamlessMD without leaving the EHR, thereby streamlining provider workflows and allowing providers to address patient needs more quickly.
“SeamlessMD has been an instrumental partner in helping us connect with our patients,” said Jeffrey Suzewits, chief medical information officer for the HSHS Central Illinois Division. “The integration of Epic® and SeamlessMD is an exciting milestone as we continue to innovate and better serve patients in our communities”
