Instead of developers trying to integrate with over 1,000 different EMRs, we provide a unified data exchange interface that lets developers focus on their products instead of becoming EMR integrators.
REDWOOD CITY, CA, September 08, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/ -- CareConnectorsTM, developers of the PatientGraphTM Platform, today announced a new set of software tools and services that provide mobile health application developers with a unified healthcare data sharing and exchange interface to enable faster time to market.
The Apple iOS8 launch scheduled for September 9th is expected to expand healthcare-related mobile device functionality, including support for wearable devices and healthcare applications. Developers building medical, health and fitness apps for the Apple iOS8 platform need to insure that health data, often referred to as Protected Health Information (PHI), is transported, shared, exchanged and stored in compliance with the Healthcare Insurance Portability and Accessibility Act (HIPAA) of 1996.
Developers will be able to use PatientGraph software tools that work with iOS8/HealthKit applications and devices to enable PatientGraph services that transport, share and exchange sensitive medical data (PHI) in a secure and HIPAA compliant manner. In addition, medical data can be exchanged through PatientGraph with the leading electronic medical records (EMR) systems through one secure, compliant interface.
"With iOS8 and HealthKit arriving from Apple, device and application developers will have new options for addressing the top chronic care issues of today - asthma, diabetes and heart failure," explained Dr. Sanjay Patil, founder and CEO of CareConnectors. "Instead of app developers trying to integrate with over 1,000 different EMRs with varying implementations of each EMR at different healthcare providers, we are providing a unified data exchange interface that lets developers focus on their products instead of becoming EMR integrators. By facilitating communication between the eco-system of mobile apps with enterprise EMRs, we help healthcare systems and their providers to leverage their EMR investment to improve outcomes and reduce costs in managing chronic disease and wellness programs. Our PatientGraph API avoids the need for developers to become familiar with HL7, complex APIs or data models for each EMR."
TrueVault, an early beta user of the PatientGraph tools, is using the PatientGraph platform to enable customers using TrueVault for secure health data storage to enable healthcare providers, patients and trusted third-parties to exchange data seamlessly using TrueVault's HIPAA compliant data storage and security service. "Developers are racing to build new apps for consumers that track things like sleep cycles, calories burned and blood-sugar levels," explained Jason Wang, founder and CEO of TrueVault. "But that data becomes much more valuable when it can be shared between patients and healthcare providers. That sharing requires a HIPAA compliant and secure data exchange. With TrueVault's new iOS SDK and PatientGraph, developers can build HIPAA compliant apps that share data with existing healthcare systems without having to write lots of time-consuming custom code."
