– Health Gorilla and Canvas Medical announce collaboration to enable data exchange capabilities within the Canvas health technology platform.
– Canvas Medical is licensing Health Gorilla’s FHIR-based APIs to exchange data with our network of diagnostic vendors to support new workflows for their providers and power population health insights within their EMR platform.
Health Gorilla, a provider of clinical data APIs, and Canvas Medical, the health IT partner that champions independent primary care practices, announced today a collaboration to enable data exchange capabilities within the Canvas health technology platform. Canvas is now licensing Health Gorilla’s FHIR-based APIs to exchange information electronically with a vast network of diagnostic vendors.
Power Lab Ordering for Primary Care Providers
Over the past five years, Canvas has scaled its health IT platform across primary care practices to ease the burden of medical charting and administrative tasks on clinicians. Canvas will license Health Gorilla’s APIs to streamline lab ordering for its network of clinicians. Health Gorilla has built interfaces with over 100 diagnostic vendors, including national labs, specialty labs, and in-house reference labs, allowing developers to embed this connectivity within their products. This connectivity enables providers to place electronic orders and receive test results in a structured format, supporting patient care and powering population health insights.
Improving Healthcare Interoperability through FHIR APIs
Progress with data interoperability has made it easier for digital health developers and providers to access clinical data from third parties. FHIR APIs enable developers to connect their products to Health Gorilla’s secure data network without having to build interfaces and complex integrations with other systems. Canvas will leverage this collaboration to further reduce the burden on primary care physicians while automating manual clinical processes.
“Our goal at Canvas is to deliver a modern technology platform that empowers physicians to provide the best care for their patients and find joy in their work,” said Andrew Hines, Chief Executive Officer at Canvas Medical. “Health Gorilla’s APIs give us the flexibility to own the provider experience, while connecting to their vast consortium of diagnostic vendors on the back-end.”
