Why FHIR Matters
The HL7 FHIR data sharing standard provides the best tool yet to connect healthcare software systems and put personal health information in patients’ hands. And we are hurtling toward fast-approaching FHIR compliance deadlines.
The 21st Century Cures Act and subsequent Centers for Medicare Services (CMS) rules say that everyone must figure out and adopt FHIR, and soon. That includes healthcare technology companies, providers, and payers. How can you get ahead of meeting your FHIR market goals and the rapid compliance timeline with a quality solution?
Well, there’s a ready, plug-in technology that does almost all of the heavy lifting for building FHIR interfaces for you and your customers. Welcome to KMS Connect, the FHIR accelerator for healthcare!
FHIR: A Particular Pain Point for Payers
The payer community faces tight compliance timelines for publishing outward-facing APIs that provide the free exchange of electronic health information to patients.
The 21st Century Cures Act mandates the adoption of FHIR standards for data exchange among healthcare systems and calls for three distinct APIs focused on three specific problems:
These APIs all affect payer data access, and all have adoption deadlines for compliance in 2022. Get a huge leap ahead on payer compliance with FHIR Accelerator.
The Benefits of Using FHIR
Building FHIR Interfaces Yourself Remains Complex
We recently asked IT leaders, product managers, and developers from healthcare IT companies where FHIR fits in their product roadmaps. We found a mixed bag of FHIR awareness, understanding, and planning. Many developers in particular expressed gaps in their technical knowledge to build FHIR interfaces.
Develop FHIR Interfaces with KMS
Get There Faster with the FHIR Accelerator
Healthcare IT and software companies have come to KMS Healthcare for custom integrations with EHR and other electronic health information (EHI) systems.
We recognized that these healthcare technology companies all need the same set of core capabilities to develop FHIR interfaces. So we gave it to them (and to you) with the FHIR Accelerator.
Enable > 80% of Your FHIR Interface
The FHIR Accelerator bundles those core capabilities, enabling 80 percent or even 90 percent of your FHIR interface platform. From there, you just need to configure the specific endpoints.
Centralized Data Collection & Integration
Use one single management console to connect to individual endpoints, export data, and monitor activity. The FHIR Accelerator collects data from these endpoints through a consistent API, which your technology team integrates to use the data in your workflows.
