A new collaboration between Orca Health and Redox will allow Orca to integrate their smart apps with health systems looking for a modernized approach to the patient experience. Starting in the waiting room and extending along the continuum of care, Orca Health’s smart apps allow providers to guide, accompany, and instruct patients while simultaneously gathering a wealth of actionable data. Using Redox’s full-service EHR integration platform, Orca will quickly and securely transfer patient care plans, data collection and data analytics to providers to improve patient engagement and outcomes.
Orca Health/Redox Integration Details
Redox will serve as an application layer connecting Orca Health’s patient experience platform, including the waiting room app, point-of-care app, and patient engagement app, with over 42 EHR systems and countless orthopedic, cardiology, dental, ophthalmology and ENT clinics, provider groups and hospitals. This integration ensures that every piece of patient information is automatically documented within the EHR, which helps cut down on the amount of time clinicians spend logging interactions.
Improved Patient Data Security & Privacy
In addition to enhanced integration, this partnership adds a layer of patient data security and privacy alongside Orca Health’s already stringent HIPAA-compliant standards. Redox also offers industry, HIPAA-compliant and National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) recommended encryption standards. “Keeping patient health information secure is our highest priority. With that in mind, we keep data safe through every step of integration,” said Ben Waugh, CSO, Redox.
Why The Integration Matters
“Patients and providers are eager to use our solutions to fulfill the promise of digital health: clarity in education, increased patient engagement and empowerment, ease in communication, and access to actionable data. But the true utility also requires ease of implementation and integration,” said Matt Berry, CEO of Orca Health. “Collaboration with Redox’s platform ensures that regardless of variations between EHR systems and data formats, every provider and organization will be able to seamlessly and securely deploy our solutions within their systems.”
“Orca’s digital health tools allow clinicians to gain access to better patient information and provide more personalized and effective care,” said Niko Skievaski, co-founder & president, Redox. “Their platform is a perfect example of how technology alleviates pain points felt by clinicians, health systems and patients. We’re pleased to power Orca’s applications and have them in our interoperable network.”
