EHR-HIE: Interoperability & Connectivity

HIE & EHR Interoperability & Connectivity

Electronic health record (EHR) and health information exchange (HIE) interoperability is associated with improved workflow efficiency, more referrals, streamlined claims processing, better quality of patient care, patient safety and cost savings. What’s more, HIE interoperability brings together the data for providers to measure and report on HEDIS indicators required for quality-based payment models and programs. But implementing HIE and EHR interoperability is difficult and requires the extensive expertise of a health information service provider (HISP).

As a notable health information service provider, RelayHealth has HIE interoperability figured out – whether you are connecting two EHRs, a health information organization (HIO), or connecting via a state health information exchange. Our expertise with HIE and EHR interoperability – doing the hard part in connecting healthcare IT products – is why RelayHealth is among the mostly highly regarded health information service providers. Let us share our experience with bi-directional and hospital-ambulatory connectivity to help speed your time to value and long-term satisfaction with your HIE clinical solution.

Fast and scalable HIE and EHR interoperability

HIE interoperability is difficult because there aren’t a lot of standards for the exchange of healthcare data. There are hundreds of different EHR solutions, each with their own terminology. As a result, setting up HIE connectivity is usually time- and resource-intensive. RelayHealth, a recognized health information service provider, has successfully connected more than 120 different healthcare IT products via our cloud-based clinical data warehouse and has normalized the HIE and EHR interoperability process to enable faster implementation.

RelayHealth has invested significant financial and human resources to shorten your time to value – by creating standard ready-to-use templates for connecting EHRs. Even with a never-seen-before EHR interface, we have the HL7 expertise to build the HIE interoperability from scratch – more efficiently and with deeper understanding than most other health information service providers and vendors.

Bidirectional BHIE: physician to your lab and back 

Connectivity isn’t just about data sharing. It’s also about streamlining workflow and bringing the collaboration capabilities right to the desktop to the end user in the healthcare practice.

Bidirectional health information exchange, or BHIE, is a new term in the industry. RelayHealth has been closely involved with the Department of Defense and the Department of Veterans Affairs in implementing BHIE for healthcare data exchange. RelayHealth HIE solutions support bidirectional HIE and EHR interoperability, pulling data out as well as pushing it in.
