iMethods Partners with Healthcare as a Service (HaaS) Provider Hart
Working together to enhance real-time data sharing between HIT platforms
iMethods and Hart announced today a partnership designed to help their respective health system clients better manage the sharing of data between disparate technology platforms. Hart’s ability to go beyond current HIT standards (e.g., HL7, CDA, FHIR) to normalize data from different systems in near real-time is a game changer for hospitals looking to better manage information across clinical and business applications.
As health systems work to gain efficiencies in workflows during the current health crisis, high quality, reliable and timely data has never been more important. Whether for data archiving, integration of clinical and/or claims data for population health initiatives, consolidation of patient data residing in disconnected EMRs across a single health system, decision support or patient self-scheduling, Hart’s platform can help a hospital system meet its data management goals.
Hart’s platform allows access to all the data in an EMR and the ability to harmonize the data across disparate EMRs and distribute the data to multiple endpoints. This approach can provide the history of patients from the provider organizations with higher fidelity and is EMR agnostic. No more waiting. No more uncertainty.
According to VP of Client Results Tripp Drawdy, “iMethods recognizes the critical nature of quality data. It’s the hallmark of all successful healthcare IT initiatives. As we look to expand our footprint and bring a deeper and broader set of offerings to our client partners, a partnership with Hart was an obvious choice. It directly aligns with our commitment to leveraging technology for the benefit of improving care delivery and patient outcomes.”
Adds Tom Fangman, Senior Vice President of Solutions at Hart, “As Hart unlocks the data across disparate EMRs for a health system, iMethods can deploy consulting experts in virtually every major healthcare IT platform who utilize that data to implement changes that improve quality and performance.”
As healthcare continues to change, more rapidly all the time, having data management strategies that can flex with the needs of patients, payers and employers will be a key differentiator for hospitals looking to gain efficiencies and reduce costs.
